Cilantro Lime Dressing

  • 1/4 cup of lime juice and white vinegar combined (12 limes, juiced plus white vinegar)
  • 1/23/4 cup light oil (I use grapeseed oil, but light olive oil, vegetable oil or canola oil would be great)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Pat fish fillet with dry paper towel, then season liberally with seasoning. Add a teaspoon or two of light oil to skillet (or nonstick spray), then gently add fish to pan. Cook for approximately 3-4 minutes, until bottom layer of fish is cooked and looks “white”. Gently turn fish and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until fish is completely cooked through and flaky. Assemble salad, top with fish and Cilantro Lime Dressing and enjoy.
