Recipe

Salmon is one of the first things I think of when I want a quick and easy meal.  Since it generally cooks in under fifteen minutes and doesn't need a lot of extra stuff to be delicious, I almost always think of it when I am running through the grocery store frantically trying to plan dinner.  This simple spice rub is one I use all the time for salmon, chicken, steak, and pork.  The chili powder adds a nice amount of spice without being overpowering and the ginger and paprika add some zing.  If you like a sweet and spicy combination, consider adding a touch of brown sugar to the mix as well.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix together all of the dry spices.
  2. Spray each piece of salmon with cooking spray and rub the spice rub onto the fish.
  3. Using a sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the salmon and cook on one side for 4-5 minutes. Flip the salmon and cook for an additional 4-6 minutes until done to your liking. This would also be great grilled broiled for 4-5 minutes per side.
