Sweet and Spicy Salmon

  • Four, 4-ounce fresh salmon fillets

  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp. honey

  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 tbsp. chili powder

  • 1 tsp. cumin

  • Salt & Pepper - to taste

  • 2 cups brown rice

Combine honey and 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and lightly brush onto each salmon fillet, flesh side up. In another dish, combine brown sugar, chili powder, salt, pepper, and cumin to make the dry rub. Using your hands, rub mixture onto the flesh sides of the salmon fillets. Heat a large iron skillet to medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. When hot, add salmon fillets skin side down and immediately reduce heat to medium-low. Pan-sear salmon for 7 minutes, flip and fry for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from heat and serve each fillet on appropriate serving of brown rice - pairs well with a green veggie!
