Four 4-6 Ounce Boned, Skinned Salmon Filets
1-2 TBS Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Slammin Salmon Sweet
1 fresh lemon (or lime), cut into quarters
Pre-heat your oven to 350 Degrees F.
Turn on your outdoor grill and get it very hot. 500-600 Degrees F-using the highest flame settings will get you there in a few minutes. If you do not have a grill, heat a cast iron skillet on a high flame on top of the stove and get it very hot.
Rub your salmon filets on both sides with the olive oil.
Place the salmon on the hot grill (or cast iron skillet) for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat and place them in a sheet tray or broiler tray.
Using a spoon liberally coat the tops of the salmon with Slammin Salmon Sweet. Do not be afraid to go big here with the seasoning. You should have a nice coating.
Place into the oven for 2-3 more minutes until the rub is baked into the salmon.
Bring them out of the oven, plate them carefully and squeeze a lemon quarter over each filet.
I like this recipe because it easy and quick to prepare, and it allows the salmon to shine. I think our rub adds the perfect amount of sweet and savory to the salmon. I serve this with grilled vegetables or over the top of a nice romaine salad. The salmon is also great when chilled after the cooking process, so you can make it a day ahead to top your favorite Caesar salad. If you like a little heat, you can substitute Slammin Salmon Spicy for the Sweet.
