a little secret
Pssst. Hey, I'll let you in on a little secret. This is the best salmon ever. It's the perfect subtle mix of flavors. I swear, it tastes like something you would eat in a fine restaurant, and it's super simple to make. Here's all you do:
Mix equal amounts of chili powder and brown sugar in a dish. Dredge raw salmon fillets in the mixture. In a bit of oil in a hot skillet on the stove top, caramelize each side about one minute. Remove to a baking sheet and pop in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until cooked through. That's it. Easy peasy.
Many thanks to my friend Susan at 29 Black Street for this fabulous recipe. I've been making it nearly every week this summer at the manor. Everybody loves it. I promise, you will, too.
