9 Spices Salmon (Baked or Grilled)


God I love salmon! There is something so comforting knowing I'm eating a healthy, nutritious piece of meat/fish/protein, and salmon always fits the bill (when we make it). We don't lather it up with tons of oils or nasty things like butter because, well, salmon already has a wonderful healthy oiliness to it, so why bother?

Most of the time I like to just toss on a little bit of cajun seasoning and black pepper with lemon, but this time we mixed it up a bit. This was also paired with my famous Asparagus Risotto. Mmm! To find out what makes this one special, you'll have to follow us after the jump. Enjoy!


2 salmon filets
9 spices mix:
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried onion
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon mustard seed
1/8 teaspoon dill
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt


Baking: Preheat oven to 375 F. Place salmon in baking dish and sprinkle seasoning mix on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes of until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

Grilling: Preheat grill to medium high heat. Cook seasoned salmon for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.
