How to make green marinade?

The green marinade is a flavorful and healthy marinade with fresh herbs. Coriander leaves, mint leaves, ginger, garlic, green chilies, and coconut together makes a flavorful and aromatic marinade for the salmon. This marinade is easy and simple to make, all you need is the mixer or blender to grind the herbs to a smooth paste. I made this smooth and silky green marinade with my new blender “Blendtec”. It just grinds the herbs and coconut smoothly with only a few drops of water.

  1. Rinse coriander leaves, mint leaves and green chilies in water.


2. In a blender place, the coriander leaves, mint leaves, green chilies, coconut, garlic, ginger, salt and grind it to a smooth paste. If it is difficult to grind, sprinkle little amount of water and grind.


3. Check for the salt taste before applying the marinade on the salmon fillet.

Smart Cooking Tips:

  1. Baking time varies with the thickness of the salmon fillet. Make sure to cook until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.


2. Seal the foil edges properly because salmon oozes water while cooking. Sealing the foil edges helps to avoid spilling the cooking liquid from salmon.


3. You can use your favorite seasonings and marinade in this recipe.


4. Apply the marinade and seasoning evenly on the salmon fillet.


5. Avoid using too much of water for grinding the green marinade, it should be in a thick consistency. If you are using the frozen coconut, make sure to thaw it before grinding.
