Hardly a recipe at all really, here’s a way (shamelessly lifted from Wiley’s Finest’ Blog) to turn a piece of salmon into something special. With a coating of some quickly blended spices, a blast of heat and a drizzle of maple syrup the fish turns into a mix of spicy, salty and sweet Unami. I tried it with some of Jimmy Meyler’s organic salmon, delicious!
4 (6-ounce) Salmon Fillets
1⁄2 tsp Sea or Himalayan Salt
Oil for Cooking
1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup or Honey
2 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Ground Smoked Paprika
1⁄2 tsp Ground Cumin
1⁄2 tsp Brown Sugar
1. Heat a pan or griddle pan on high for 10 min. and then turn to low before cooking. Combine the spice ingredients in small bowl. Sprinkle fish with salt; then rub with spice mixture on all sides except skin.
2. Spread pan surface with cooking oil and place fish skin side down. Cook for 7-8 minutes depending on thickness. Test with fork—fish will flake easily when done.
3. During the last minute of cooking, drizzle maple syrup or honey over fish and continue to cook for 1 min.
4. Serve immediately with sautéed vegetables or your favorite side. This is also great over a mixed greens salad. Enjoy!
