I might be tempted to try this with no salt and half the sugar.
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.
