Cardamom Maple Salmon

A sweet and spicy take on salmon


Salt 1 1/2 teaspoons
Paprika 1 teaspoon
Ground cardamom 1 teaspoon
Ground cilantro 1 teaspoon
Ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon
Grapeseed oil 1/4 cup
Maple syrup 2 tablespoons
Salmon fillet 1 weighing 2 pounds, cut into 3-inch pieces

15 minutes to prepare, 10 minutes to cook, ready in 25 minutes

This is a pretty neat way to make a relatively fancy meal with relatively little fuss.

Step 1: Grab a decent sized bowl; pour in the salt, paprika, cardamom, silantro, and ground black pepper; mix them all up, really well.

Step 2: Pour your oil and maple syrup into your dry mixture, and continue stirring it, until it’s well and evenly mixed.

Step 3: Start heating up a non-stick pan with a medium to high heat.

Step 4: Cover the pieces of salmon in the mixture you finished in the second step – make sure it’s all on evenly.

Step 5: Get the salmon on the pan, and cook it on both sides, until it cuts just nicely with a fork. Especially with any kind of fish, it’s a good idea to cut through and make sure it’s cooked throughout before serving.

That’s all there is to it. In less than a half hour, with ingredients most people have in their kitchen anyway, you’ve transformed a humble piece of salmon into something far more exotic.
