Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets, skin and any bones discarded
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil

Directions

Heat pan with some of the oil over medium heat.

While pan heats up, combine brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Brush each salmon fillet with 1/2 teaspoon of oil, then rub each piece of fish with 1/2 tablespoon of spice mixture.

Cook the salmon flesh side down, until charred, which will take 4 to 5 minutes.

Flip the salmon and cook another 8 minutes and serve.
