Eastover Sunday rolls around but once a year in years past we used to have larger crowds but with everyone spread out all over the country and others watching from above well we are a smaller group these days. That’s fine with me because two of my favorite people came. Laurel and Mike (our son). In our combined families there are tons of Mikes so I have to distinguish which one when talking about a Mike. Laurel fills the air with excitement this visit she was showing off their new couch (pictures) and later the sweater she was knitting. She enjoys cooking as much as we do and show the correct amount of excitement when I pull out my new carving knife, yes a true foodie. Mike turned Lyn on to Snap Chat a program where you send a still or a 10 second video that once viewed by the recipient disappears forever. She gets so excited and nervous at the same time when she receives on and is remembering to keep pressing to view. She announced this morning that “I got a Snap Chat with Laurel modeling her new sweater!!” I teased and said let me see it. Each year we say the same thing this was the best meal since last Eastover and to me the company made it! For us this recipe was originally in Sonoma Diet cook book, I can’t believe I never posted it we make it often. When you Google it, it shows up under many names and faces and it should it is quick easy and simply delicious spread the news.
- 6 – 4-ounce fresh or frozen skinless, boneless salmon fillets, about 1 inch thick
- 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
- 1 tablespoon smoked paprika or ground ancho chile pepper
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Note: This rub is good on steaks also.
Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Measure thickness of fish. Set aside.
In a small bowl combine sweet paprika, smoked paprika, chili powder, kosher salt, garlic powder, black pepper, cumin, and oregano. Transfer spice mixture to a piece of waxed paper. Gently roll fish fillets in spice mixture to coat.
Brush about half of the olive oil in the bottom of a broiler pan or 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Place fish fillets in prepared pan; turn any thin portions under to make uniform thickness. Drizzle tops of fish with remaining olive oil. Broil fish 4 inches from the heat for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, carefully turning once halfway through broiling. Whoops I forgot to do this, this time no wonder Lyn and I remembered crispy skin.
This picture does not do it justice, sorry.
