Cajun Salmon Fillets

I found this recipe on-line. There were a few people who had commented that they thought this recipe would be better on a fish other than salmon. I listened to them and I think it was a mistake.

1 T olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tspn. paprika
3/4 tspn. pepper
1/2 tspn. dried mustard
1/2 tspn. dried oregano
1/2 tspn. chili powder
1 pinch cayenne
4 salmon fillets (single serving size)

Place salmon skin-side down on a baking sheet covered in aluminum foil.

Combine oil and spices and spread on top of salmon fillets.

Grill on BBQ about 15-20 minutes or until done or bake at 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees until done.

Remove skin prior to serving.

Did I change anything? Like I said before, I didn’t use salmon and I think I should have. Also, if/when I make this again, I will definitely grill it. I think the flavor the grill would give it would go really well with the spices.

What did the family think? I should have used the salmon. 🙂

We had this with black beans, spanish rice and strawberries.

    I have a recipe for a very similar rub, and it’s fantastic on salmon. Grill it on a cedar plank, and you will not be sorry!!
