Usually when I find a recipe to try in a magazine, cookbook, etc. I will cut it out/print it/ highlight it and then forget it. Sometimes I will remember the “MUST TRY” recipe and then realize I don’t have the ingredients… enter Pinterest. I have boards concerning food… shocking I know. One specifically is “Under the Sea,” this one is a new one I created just for seafood dishes 🙂 And when ELR posted her Sweet and Spicy Glazed Salmon Sandwiches I knew it would need to be pinned immediately. Not only did I have the ingredients on hand… but it was so easy! And fast 🙂 I only did the salmon… but what I would give to have a pretzel roll (from Edelweiss in town)! Next time I might have to drop in at the German bakery downtown (previously mentioned, Edelweiss) and grab a couple!
I followed her recipe only leaving out one spice– here is what went into this delicious salmon entrée!
Turn the oven on broil. Take your salmon out and rinse it off. Dry it and place it on a foil lined baking sheet. Rub some sea salt on them (about 1/2 teaspoon on each filet). Now mix your spices.
In the mix- 2 teaspoons brown sugar, heaping 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 2 teaspoons of chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper. Rub on the salmon! Melt some raw honey and drizzle on top.
It seems like a lot for spices… this was a record for me! I normally do a sprinkle of S & P on my salmon haha so this really rocked my socks 😉 Place in the oven (I did the lowest rack) for 5 minutes (I think I could’ve done 3 minutes). This does not taste fishy… ELR mentions that in her post.
To accompany, I did broccoli. Cut, thrown in boiling water for a minute, shocked, and tossed with olive oil/S&P.
Then mushrooms sautéed in coconut oil… tossed with the broccoli. The veggies were served with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast (for cheesiness).
For crunch, we ate a few blue corn tortilla chips. This salmon was delicious! For a final touch, I added a squeeze of lemon to the entire dish (fish and veggies).
It is spicy but sweet… and so YUMMY!
Happy Thursday! Last night I got in some yoga… MUCH needed. I enjoy it so much!
Weather— Keep an eye on it… stay informed (for those in Central AL click here!). We could have some rowdy weather late evening into early Friday morning.
For now, I am enjoying my 70 degree weather 😉
