Grilling and summer go hand in hand. Not only is this casual season perfect for parties, but cooking outside gets the heat out of your kitchen and makes cleanup a cinch.
Want to make it even easier? Having your favorite marinades and seasonings ready to go allows for super quick dinner prep. Here’s a favorite salmon seasoning recipe we use all the time—it’s tasty with a kick but not too spicy, a crowd pleaser for sure! Store in an empty spice jar so you always have some on hand, because it can be used for poultry and meat dishes as well.
|1/4 cup paprika|
|1 TB chili powder|
|1 TB ground cumin|
|1 teaspoon salt|
|1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon|
|1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper|
|1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper|
|2 salmon fillets|
1. Combine the seasonings and stir. If you have an empty spice jar, store in there so you can use as needed.
2. To season the salmon, brush a little olive oil onto the fish, then sprinkle with the spice rub. Season to your liking: for bold taste, use just under 1 TB of seasoning per pound of fish. For lighter taste, use much less. Grill salmon as you normally would, and serve with a slice of lemon or lime.
Add some marinated vegetables to the grill and toss a salad, and you’ve got a healthy dinner ready to enjoy. Under 5 minutes prep time AND a tasty dish? Summer grilling season is the best!
