Recipe

One of my favorite combinations, especially with seafood, is sweet and spicy. This is a simple homemade spice rub that is a great complement to salmon but works well with other proteins as well. Also, this meal can be made in under 20 minutes. I paired it with some simple braised kale, sprinkled with a little cotija cheese.

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 saute pan, heat 1 tbsp of 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.
