Quick Salmon Recipe

Salmon fillet (Use fresh if possible, if using frozen, thaw it completely)
Salt, pepper to taste
fresh cilantro
lemon slices
2 tsp olive oil
pinch of garam masala powder or fish masala (optional)
Aluminium foil
Take aluminium foil square (much bigger than the piece of salmon). Place the salmon on the foil. Sprinkle salt, pepper, masala (garam or fish masala) and fresh cut cilantro on both side. Add olive oil and keep the lemon slices on the salmon. Wrap the fish in the foil, making a nice pouch. You can add 2 layers of foil to keep it intact.
Keep enough water for boiling in a large pot. Slide the salmon pouch in the boiling water and let it remain in boiling water for about 7-10 mins (depending upon the size of salmon fillet). Remove and let it cool for 2-3 mins. The salmon will be ready to eat.
Nice thing is that the fish does not smell at this point, neither the house is filled with smell nor the utensils. I found this was easy way to cook and it tastes delicious.
To kick it up a notch, you can also add sauteed onion or bell-peppers  or mint leaves or any other seasoning of choice inside your pouch.
