Serves 4

2/3 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro or fresh basil

3 tablespoons shredded or grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade mix (or salt-free garlic-herb blend)

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or lightly spray with olive oil.
