Simple Spice Rubbed Salmon

This salmon recipe is simple, but impressive! I love that the ingredients in this pack a lot of flavor. However, these are all pantry staples so this is an easy meal to throw together in a pinch! There is something I love about recipes that are uncomplicated and uncomplicated, but are delicious. This is one of them!

The spices on this salmon remind me of a similar way Julian's mom prepares salmon. It is never complicated, but it always tastes amazing. It's always a treat to have her cooking when we visit!

The spices I used for this recipe are onion powder, garlic powder, dried parsley and paprika. I find this to be a very versatile and delicious spice combination that is delicious on fish, chicken, or even vegetables. However, if you prefer to use a different spice in place of one of these ingredients, then try it out!

How to Make This Simple Spice Rubbed Salmon

While the full recipe instructions are available below, here are some tips to make this easy salmon dinner!

First, mix olive oil and your spices together in a small bowl to form a paste. Place your salmon fillets on a parchment lined baking sheet. Now, using a spoon or a pastry brush, spread the paste onto the salmon. If you are looking for a good pastry brush, I love the OXO Good Grips one - it works like a champ and is dishwasher safe!

Next, we will bake the salmon for twelve to fifteen minutes. Be careful not to overcook the salmon. This is important, because it overcooks easily and can get very dry. Once the salmon is cooked, place your salmon on a plate with your favorite side dishes and enjoy!
