Cumin Dusted Salmon Fillets

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.

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.
