    **Tinkerbell**'s Note:

    This original recipe was created for the ZWT6 Mixing Pot Challenge, hosted by the Fish & Seafood Forum. Team X-tra Hot Dishes has lived up to it's name and just like the influential flavors of North Africa, we are spicy and energetic with a balance of zesty sweetness mixed in. This easy, yet bold-flavored rub for salmon shows off some of our best qualities!

      I enjoy sweet baked goods with cardamom and I liked being able to use it in a savory dish. I loved the combination of spices but thought it over powered the salmon a little. Made for ZWT6.

      Sensational seafood rub. We made this exactly as written and enjoyed every mouthful. It is a bit cardamom heavy (in future I may or may not use half the amount), but your recipe title lets people know that it is supposed to be a dominant flavour. This will certainly be a go-to recipe for me when I have salmon steaks. We especially loved the spice mixture and the ease of preparation. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

      WOW! A lot more spices than I usually include on my salmon (& we eat a lot of it!), & this is wonderful! Will admit that I cut back just a hair on the cumin & cayenne & was generous with the lemon & garlic, but then, that's just me! This is definitely a nice addition to my growing ways to prepare salmon! [Made & reviewed for the Fish & Seafood~Part 2: Mixing Pot Challenge during ZWT6]
