I came across this recipe a few weeks ago and have made it for my husband and I twice already. It’s so easy as well as fast and delicious. I had never cooked fish before this but it was much easier than I thought. I only got 2 salmon steaks to cook since our daughter doesn’t like fish but you can easily double the recipe.


2 salmon steaks (or filets)

1 lime

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon chili powder

dash of cayenne pepper

dash of salt

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


In a bowl, add brown sugar, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and salt. Mix together. Lay salmon on a cutting board. Cut lime in half and squeeze each half on salmon steaks on both sides. Take the rub and coat the salmon on each side with fingers.

In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add the salmon steaks (if using filets, put them skin side up) and cook, undisturbed for 4 minutes. Flip the salmon on the other side and cook another 4 minutes until fish is firm and flaky.

I served this along with baked sweet potatoes and fresh steamed green beans. Delicious!

I hope you enjoy!
