Spice-Rubbed Salmon

If you’re looking for a quick yet flavorful meal, this spice rub for salmon fillets will do the trick. In under 15 minutes, you’ll have dinner on the table. The rub isn’t overly spicy and my kids love it. The brown sugar helps to balance all the savory ingredients, yielding a slightly sweet bite of fish. Enjoy!
