Salmon with Pastrami Rub

23 Jul

Bold flavors are the thing in my house. I cook salmon as often as possible, therefore I am always trying new ideas for flavoring it. I came a cross a recipe for pastrami rub for a meat, and thought why not tweak it a bit for salmon. Typically bold flavors go well with fatty fish like salmon, and this was no exception. The salmon had a nice flavorful spice crust.

  • 1 salmon filet

For the rub: Mix well together

  • 1 1/2 tbs crushed black peppercorn
  • 1  1/2 tbs ground coriander seeds
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground mustard

Rub both sides of the salmon with the seasoning mix. Place in an oven dish. Bake in 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish.

    Reblogged this on The No Salt, No Fat, No Sugar Journal and commented:
    I might be tempted to try this with no salt and half the sugar.

      To be honest John, I forgot to add the salt and did not miss it at all. This makes a lot of rub, enough for several meals.
