- In a baking dish place the salmon fillets. Drizzle olive oil and season each fillet with cumin, salt and pepper.

"Hogao" is a traditional Colombian creole sauce made with tomatoes, scallions, garlic, cumin and cilantro. I love this sauce and I am oddly tempted to dump it over everything I cook, from soups, fish, meat or poultry, to a bowl of plain steamy white rice with fried egg 😉
Last week I made this fish dish for lunch and the flavors are incredible. The salmon is soft, the hogao sauce is rich, and together it melts in your mouth in perfect harmony.
