Spicy Grilled Salmon

13 Aug

Spring is officially here. I know in some parts of the world it is still very cold. Florida spring is perfect at the moment. We will suffer later in the summer, but for now, outdoors is perfect. The days are already longer, and we love to spend our evenings out on the patio. Grilled meal outside is perfect way to end a day.   This salmon recipe will spice up an evening in any weather.

For the salmon:

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • juice of 1 lemon
  •  salmon fillet
  • olive oil spray

Combine all the spices in a small bowl. Squeeze lemon juice over salmon then rub in the spices to completely coat; set aside to rest about 15 minutes. Grill salmon over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side or until the fish is opaque throughout.
