If you’re like me, you are always trying to find new ways to cook fish. Truth is I tend to find salmon, and fish in general, to be a little bland. I’m picky about my fish recipes because I definitely need some flavor going on. I rarely order in at restaurants for this reason.

But this salmon is quite tasty – plenty of flavor, yet it doesn’t overpower the salmon. It can be a little spicy though, just so you know. I never think it’s too much, but if you have some people that are sensitive to spicy, just pull back on the amount of seasoning you add.

In case you are unaware, here’s a fun little tip for when you buy your salmon. I’m a not a huge fan of the skin on the bottom – it’s pretty slimy and gross. But you can usually have them take it off at the grocery store for you right at the counter. Easy!

So if you like salmon and want something super quick and easy with plenty of flavor, this is the recipe for you. Honestly, you can hardly call it a recipe – it’s just that easy.
