Love this recipe. This was the second time I've made it, and it was just as delicious as I remembered.
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
½ Tablespoon ground cumin
½ Tablespoon paprika
½ Tablespoon Salt
¼ teaspoon dry mustard
dash of cinnamon
4 to 6 salmon fillets
2 Tablespoons canola oil
Mix all rub ingredients together in a medium bowl.
When ready to cook the salmon, generously coat one side of the salmon fillet (usually the non-skin side, for presentation) with the rub.
Heat oil in a large heavy pan over medium-high heat. Carefully place salmon fillets in pan, seasoned side down.
Cook about 2 minutes to sear; turn fillets over. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking 6 to 8 minutes.
Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
