    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]
