Incredibly delicious salmon and very flavorful. Easy to make and just the right amount of spice. I would suggest using your vent hood fan as these spices are very pungent and do take on a life of their own. I would love to find a way to grill the salmon outdoors vs. cooking it indoors. I will definitely make it again. Made for the Best of the 2012 tag.
