This garlic-crusted salmon with fresh tomato-cilantro relish is light, delicious and quick: the perfect mid-week meal. Pour a glass of the new World Vineyard Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc for the perfect pairing. Serves 4.
Garlic-Crusted Salmon

4 skinless salmon fillets
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp cracked white pepper
½ tsp paprika
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
Whisk garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, lemon juice and olive oil together in a small bowl. Place the salmon fillets on lined baking sheet and rub evenly with the garlic oil mixture. Let marinate for 35 minutes. Broil  8-9 minutes until a golden-brown crust forms, but fillet is still moist and flaky inside.
