Serves 4

4 each boneless, skinless salmon filets (6-8 ounces per filet)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

Putting it all together :

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the salmon filets on a lightly greased baking sheet or roasting pan. Drizzle the filets with the lemon juice. Rub the garlic, cilantro, salt and pepper over each filet. Drizzle with the olive oil and bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, until salmon is just cooked through. Serve with Pineapple-Mango Salsa.



1 cup diced pineapple
½ cup diced mango
2 tablespoons finely diced red onion
2 tablespoons finely diced tomato
½ teaspoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (more if you like)
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and black pepper, to taste

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Chill before serving.

This beautifully balanced tropical salsa is the perfect accompaniment to the Taber’s Citrus Cilantro Salmon.

Growing up on a farm, wood stove cookery seemed as natural to Cara Lauzon as riding bareback.  Her love of outdoor adventure and food led her to Maine, where she signed on as messmate on the Schooner Stephen Taber.  After two years of assisting chefs in the galley, Cara assumed the role of chef (although she prefers to be called the cook), and her rare talent continues to blossom.  A perfect match for the Taber: good home cooking with gourmet flair.
