Salmon was on the Frog & PenguINN menu last week and here’s an easy dry rub courtesy of Tammy who posted it on Simple Southern Happiness. Check out her blog and click on the Good Eats section for mouth-watering recipes. But don’t look if you’re hungry because Tammy also posts awesome photos that look good enough to eat!
Note that for this dry rub, I estimated the amount of seasonings needed. Also I used smoked paprika and substituted dried nutmeg.
Prepare dry rub of dried garlic, paprika, dash of fresh nutmeg, and pinch of salt. Rub ingredients on salmon, wrap in plastic wrap, and marinate overnight in fridge.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Drizzle olive oil on salmon and bake until done. Cooking time varies depending on the size and thickness of the fish; ours took about 10 minutes.
Sprinkle with dill and pour pan juices on salmon before serving.
While we often serve salmon with a side of wild rice and vegetable, this meal was enjoyed with fresh beets from friends (thanks Matt and Grace) and green beans from last year’s harvest (thanks Grenville).
AND, a big thanks to Tammy for posting this wonderfully easy salmon rub. We’re planning a repeat soon.
