Cilantro-Garlic Salmon Spring Rolls

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Yesterday, Hubs and I came home a little late from work and I decided to throw together this simple and easy dish for our dinner. I would say it doesn't take a lot of time besides prepping the ingredients. We had a filet of salmon that was in the fridge that I needed to cook up so this was the best way to use it.

 Slice up 8 cloves of garlic - may seem like a lot but depends on how big the filet of salmon is.

 Wash and dry the cilantro.

 Start chopping..

 Mince it up well.

Save some on the side for part of the filling.

 Sliced garlic gets tossed into a pan of melted butter with olive oil.

 Add the minced cilantro.

Simmer together until garlic starts to show a little brown.

 Pour the cilantro-garlic butter mixture all over the filet of salmon.

 Bake for about 15-20 mins. You can tell when you use a fork and the salmon is flaky.

 Side of the extra cilantro and blanched bean sprouts.

 Rice noodles that was cooked in boiling water for 30 seconds. It cooks very fast!

 The sauce - mixture of sriracha, peanut butter, and hoisin sauce.

 The spread. We built our own as we ate! :) 
Also, have a bowl of warm water on the side to dip the spring roll wrapper in. It softens it up fast and that's when you know it's ready to use.

Ta-da! Cilantro-garlic salmon spring roll!

Hope you guys try it out and enjoy!

Disclaimer: This is a simple recipe that I just threw together. I know it's not the traditional Vietnamese spring roll but this is my version since these ingredients is what I had on hand at the time. :)

  13. Oh god, I LOVE food posts almost as much as I love outfit posts, hehe!! Too bad I'm not a big fan of cilantro but this recipe sounds pretty easy to follow! Maybe i'll just swap out cilantro for a different herb like maybe parsley?

    1. You can totally swap it out for parsley instead. It's whatever your taste buds like. :) And for the filling, you can use thai basil or mint to roll in the spring roll. I just didn't have any on hand. haha..
