Cumin Chilli Salmon

So I am writing this while nice and warm inside. Outside it has been snowing since I woke up and will continue until I go to sleep.  I think this should be the last snow of the season (fingers crossed).  I’m just taking it in stride.

I wanted to share with you the recipe for salmon that Neil made for brunch last weekend.  It was simple yet delicious and I think it is necessary to share with the WORLD.


Cumin Chilli Salmon

  • 4 6oz salmon fillets
  • few Tbsp olive oil
  • juice from 1/4 of a lemon
  • few tsp red chilli powder
  • few tsp ground cumin
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Place salmon in casserole dish (mine is 3qts) and lightly coat with olive oil. You can use your fingers or a basting brush.
  2. Squeeze the lemon juice over the fish, then sprinkle a few pinches of cumin and chilli powder over the fillets.  Adjust quantities to your tastes.  I need lots of spice in my life, so we used the chilli powder liberally.
  3. Cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes.

We always end up serving salmon when people come over because it is so quick to prepare and also so delicious and magical.  I want to eat it again while I am staring at this picture.

Tonight we are headed to Costco to pick up some essentials (yes, a giant vat of olive oil is essential) and then I am escaping inside to the warmth where I will spend my evening.  Last night was another great leg day at the gym and I am paying for it today, although not as much as I would like.  I’d better amp it up next time.

Everyone enjoy your day and make this fish. It’s dope.

Question of the day: Do you like salmon? What’s your favorite way to prepare it?
