Cumin Dusted Salmon Fillets Recipe
Cumin Dusted Salmon Fillets Notes
I found this recipe in "Cooking Light" magazine - one of my favorite sources for recipes. The spices really bring out a nice flavor in the fish. My 10-year old son, whose favorite foods are normally grilled cheese sandwiches and macaroni and cheese, loves this dish! We have it often.
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 4 6-ounce salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick), skinned
- to taste, cooking spray
Serves / Yields
Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub both sides of fish with spice mixture.
Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat, and add fish. Cook 6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
This recipe tends to "stink" up your kitchen, so open a window, turn on the fan, etc. Better yet, if weather permits, use a cast-iron pan and cook it on your outside grill!
