Chili Rubbed Salmon

Salmon is very easy to prepare and has higher levels of omega 3 fats than most fish. The best thing about preparing fish is that it takes little effort to flavor. A simple chili rub gives this fish a spicy bold flavor that does not overpower its natural taste…

Ingredients (for 2)

  • 2 fillets fresh salmon (about 280 gr or 10 oz)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • black pepper
  • chili powder as desired
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Directions

  • Chop avocado, cilantro and tomato; place into a bowl, squeeze lime juice onto mixture and toss to combine; put aside until needed (may be refrigerated)
  • Combine sugar, cumin, oregano, black pepper and chili powder in a bowl
  • Use mixture to season fish all over
  • Heat oil in a skillet and place salmon into pot; cook for 5 minutes on both sides
  • Remove from skillet and serve with salsa

Tips from the Chef

  • An alternative to frying is grilling: this will reduce the addition of excess fat and will add a smoky flavor to the fish
