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

4 servings

Preparation Instructions
  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub both sides of fish with spice mixture.

  2. 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.

Helpful Hints

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!

I have not yet made this recipe, but there is one glaring error in it. NEVER spray a a cooking oil, such as Pam, in a non stick pan. It ends up detroying the non stick surface. Use regular oil ( your preferance) instead.

Make it Again? F. C. would make this recipe again.
