I love spice rubs for quick and easy dinners. You might have seen my Spice Rubbed Grilled Chicken Wings a few weeks ago. Fish is one of those foods that seems to intimidate a lot of people when it comes to cooking. It took me years before I realized how easy fish was to cook.
With school just starting and everyone getting back into a routine, no-fuss dinners are a big plus. Fresh summer produce makes it easy to whip up a quick side dish to go along.
One recent afternoon, half an hour before my husband was leaving for the airport for a trip, I threw together this simple but healthy Spice Rubbed Roasted Salmon for him – it took just 10 minutes to cook this piece of salmon in my toaster oven. While the salmon was in the oven, I tossed together a simple corn and tomato salad made from leftover corn on the cob, fresh summer tomatoes, a touch of extra virgin olive oil, fresh ground black pepper and smoked sea salt (a find at Home Goods).

The crust on the salmon looks perfect! I’ve never broiled fish in the toaster oven…I’m going to give it a try!!
We eat salmon weekly at our house so I will have to give this spice rub a try.

Jeanette, This looks and sounds amazing! I can not wait to try your recipe! Pinned
Thanks everyone! Sometimes the easiest recipes are the best – a win win!
This salmon is making me hungry! I usually buy frozen salmon at Costco that’s already seasoned but after seeing what you have done with fresh salmon, I am definitely going to try this recipe. It is my first time visiting your website and it looks like you have a lot of great healthy recipes.
Is there a recipe for the corn and tomatoes under the salmon? It looks delicious.
For the corn and tomatoes, I simply tossed together some leftover corn on the cob, fresh tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. With fresh produce, you don’t have to do much to make it taste good 😉
This salmon looks absolutely mouthwatering, Jeanette! Salmon is my favorite and I love the perfect crust on this. Pinning. You can’t beat how quick and easy this is too and that spice rub sounds fantastic!
Nice and easy recipe. Thanks Jeanette. You’ll be fine with your boys gone. Just another adjustment in life.
Thanks Liz – yes, I know things will return to a new normal soon enough, but I’m going to miss them. Thanks for the encouragement.
