Another great Ellie Krieger recipe!
This week’s Craving Ellie in my Belly recipe, Salmon with Sweet Spicy Rub, was chosen by Pam from Lobster and Fishsticks. Once I read over the ingredient list for this simple fish recipe, I knew immediately I was going to love it. I’m a huge fan of sweet and spicy flavors…though I wouldn’t consider the flavor in this dish spicy. It has great chili flavor but there isn’t any heat, so don’t let the term “spicy” mislead you. It’s the perfect amount of seasoning.
(look at that piece of fish!)
I made the salmon with sweet spicy rub for my husband and mother in law, and they both loved it. Instead of grilling it I put it under the broiler. I served it with Whole Wheat Linguine with Spring Vegetables. I was craving pasta and as always, veggies, so although it may sound like a weird combination with the salmon, it really all went together nicely.
Enjoy the broiled salmon with sweet spicy rub recipe, and Happy Easter!
Salmon with Sweet & Spicy Rub
Yield: 6 servings
- cooking spray
- 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 6 (6-ounce) salmon fillets, skin and any pin bones removed
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Coat your grill or a grill pan with cooking spray and preheat over medium heat. While the grill is heating, combine the brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Brush each salmon fillet with 1/2 teaspoon of the oil, then rub each fillet with about 1/2 tablespoon of the spice mixture.
- Grill the salmon, flesh side down, until charred, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the salmon and cook another 5 to 6 minutes for medium doneness.
- For well done fish, cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
- Remove to a platter and serve immediately.
