Eat This Salmon. Lose 5 lbs.
Did I tell you my 30 year high school reunion is coming up?
Well, now you have figured out my age.
I would like to lose a solid 6 lbs. before the big event. I really need to get serious and stop eating cheese at 11 pm; drinking more than 2 cocktails on weekends, and basically, stop baking all together.
Maybe I should just quit the food blogging business for a while.
Is this a business? If so, let me know.
My friend Linda eats this when she wants a little detox in her life.
I would happily eat this dish weekly, whether or not I need to lose a few pounds.
It is my new favorite, EASY weeknight dinner.
Linda's Spiced Salmon: 2 portions
(2) 6 oz. salmon filets
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp chili powder
grated zest of the half lemon
3/4 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Spray some PAM on a foil lined baking sheet (parchment paper is good too). Lay the salmon filets on the foil.
Preheat oven to 425F.
Squirt the fresh lemon juice over the salmon pieces.
Mix the spices and zest together.
Divide the spice mixture in half and pat it down on the salmon.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.
This was delicious. LOVED.
Maybe with some help from this salmon, I will win the "Dick Clark Award" at my reunion again (the award for the oldest teenager!).
