  • 2 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, lime zest, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper to make the chili-lime rub.

  6. While the salmon is baking, preheat a grill pan or grill over medium heat.

  7. In a bowl, toss the mixed vegetables with the olive oil, 1 tablespoon of lime juice, salt, and pepper.

  8. Grill the vegetables for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are tender and lightly charred, turning occasionally.

  9. Remove the salmon from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.

  10. Serve the baked salmon with the grilled vegetables on the side. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
