2 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon lime zest
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups mixed vegetables (such as zucchini, bell peppers, and asparagus), sliced
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, lime zest, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper to make the chili-lime rub.
Place the salmon fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Rub each fillet with 1/2 tablespoon of lime juice.
Sprinkle the chili-lime rub evenly over the salmon fillets, pressing it gently to adhere.
Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C).
While the salmon is baking, preheat a grill pan or grill over medium heat.
In a bowl, toss the mixed vegetables with the olive oil, 1 tablespoon of lime juice, salt, and pepper.
Grill the vegetables for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are tender and lightly charred, turning occasionally.
Remove the salmon from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.
Serve the baked salmon with the grilled vegetables on the side. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
