Quick & tasty, this salmon dish is loaded with layers upon layers of flavor. Our North African sweet, spicy Berbere Blend does not disappoint and is a must for chicken, shrimp and fish. We paired it with a corn relish for a sweet-tangy crunch. Take advantage of bumper crops of corn, and tuck jars of this relish in the fridge to extend the season.
Ingredients for the Salmon:
4 Salmon filets
Directions for the Salmon:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat an oven-safe skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat. Season one side of the salmon with Berbere Blend and sprinkle with sugar--about a teaspoon of each for each filet. Drizzle All Natural Avocado Oil in the skillet. Place the salmon, seasoned side down, in the skillet. Season the side facing up with salt. Sear the salmon for 2-4 minutes or until deep golden brown and a crust forms. Turn and move the salmon to the oven. Bake for 6-10 minutes or until the desired degree of doneness--we enjoy salmon cooked medium, about 6 minutes.
