Cajun Grilled Salmon

Cajun Grilled Salmon
Comments: Delicious and light dish. Salmon is a healthy source of Omega 3’s and serving it over spinach makes it even better for you! We recommend using wild salmon which is lower in fat and calories.

1 1/2 pounds salmon, wild, steaks or filet

1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper, black, ground
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lemon, for garnish
6 ounces spinach, fresh baby

Preparation: In a small bowl, combine chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, salt and pepper. Mix well. Season the salmon on both sides rubbing in the spices. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium to medium high heat. Place salmon in the hot pan and sear without moving for 3-4 minutes on each side. Depending on thickness of fish, you may need to lower the heat and cover, cooking on low for an additional minute or two until desired doneness. Remove from skillet, serve on a bed of baby spinach and garnish with fresh lemon.
