Oven-Baked Salmon with Chili-Cumin Rub

We eat salmon with this spice rub way nearly once a week, and it’s a reliable hit every time. Try it, and you may never want to go back to any other seasoning. If you don’t want to use your oven, the recipe is also delicious cooked on the barbecue.

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 salmon fillets, 6-8 oz each
4 tsp ground cumin
4 tsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Mix the cumin, brown sugar, chili powder, salt and pepper and sprinkle over the salmon, coating all sides thoroughly. Transfer the salmon to a baking sheet or shallow roasting pan and bake (skin side down, if your fillets are skin-on) until the centers are just opaque, about 10-12 minutes.
