Image

The bold spice rub works well with rich-flavored salmon and would also be good on pork. Serve with delicate angel hair pasta or mashed potatoes.

  •  4 servings (serving size: 1 fish fillet and about 1/2 cup relish)

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets, skinned
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup prechopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Preparation

Preheat broiler.

Combine first 6 ingredients, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and dried thyme; rub evenly over fish. Place fish on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Combine 1/4 teaspoon salt, cucumber, and remaining ingredients; serve with fish.
