Chipotle Salmon w/Cilantro Lime Crema

Chipotle Salmon w/Cilantro Lime Crema


  • 4 Ea 6 oz salmon fillets
  • TT Kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1 Ea garlic clove minced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 /4 C finely chopped cilantro leaves
  • 2 Ea green onions finely sliced
  • 1/2 C Mexican crema
  • Zest & juice of 1 lime


  1. Dry the salmon well with paper towels and season it all over with salt. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, garlic, olive oil and lime juice; stir to form a paste. Spread the paste all over the salmon fillets in a thin layer, distributing it evenly. Set aside at room temperature for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Stir cilantro, green onions, crema, lime zest and juice, and a pinch of salt. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more lime juice or salt as needed. Transfer to a small serving bowl and set aside.
  3. Set a large nonstick or well-seasoned grill pan over medium-high heat and wait for it to get hot, about 5 minutes. Brush the surface with vegetable oil and add the salmon fillets skin-side down. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, pressing down on the fillets with a spatula to make sure the skin is making contact with the pan. Cook until the skin is crisp, about 6 minutes.
  4. Turn the salmon and cook on the flesh side until the salmon is done to your liking (about 1 minute longer for medium-rare). Transfer the fish to a warm plate and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let it rest for 5 minutes before serving with the sauce.
