 My comments: The original recipe called for using your food processor to make the cilantro sauce, but I don't use people and I balk at even using appliances, so I just chopped what I had by hand...because I have mean knife skills son. Yeah it is a joke you won't get unless you've lived my life, but I laugh privately.  It was delicious and I know salmon is naturally salty, but my only comment was it could have cooked for more time and I could've salted more.  But I sometimes cook with people in mind, and I was thinking about a recipe I could share with my sibling and she is so anti hyoertension she has convinced herself she doesn't like salt. I was anorexic and convinced myself I couldn't eat dairy products, so I understand our minds are powerful things.   We can taste summer, even during a cold afternoon, so I think was the day for this to be prepared.  Yummity yum yum. Omega 3, what what!   The wine I paired with the meal was an Israel Chardonnay (appropriate for food served on Yom Kippur), and it was the perfect pairing.   It is hard to life the way I hafta today, but cooking introduces some normalcy into my life...
