The grill is fired up, your lovely piece of fish is just waiting. All you need now is a salmon seasoning that will add fab flavours. And this recipe, with its blend of paprika, pepper and lemon, amongst others, is just the thing... (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)
Note: I mainly use whole spices in this salmon mix recipe as they give the best flavours. But if you don't have them all just substitute with pre-ground powders and cut down the amounts you use by about half. For example instead of 2 tablespoons of whole peppercorns you would use 1 tablespoon of ground black pepper. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well.
What You'll Need: (makes about 5-6 tablespoons)
3 tbsp coriander seeds (cilantro)
2 tbsp black peppercorns
2 tbsp dried lemon peel
1 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp dill seeds
1 tsp sea salt
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
That's all there is to it!
Store your salmon spices in an airtight container in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months before making more.
Note: Dry toasting the coriander, peppercorns and cumin seeds before grinding is worth considering. This simple process only takes minutes and really enhances the flavours and aromas which will be added to your salmon. Click here for tips and photos of how to do it. (Link opens in new window)
