Smoked Paprika Roasted Salmon

Salmon's not really my favorite fish, but this spice rub makes it so much better.

That's sort of a healthy looking meal there, isn't it?


1/4 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves, divided
4 salmon fillets
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix orange juice and 1 teaspoon thyme in a small bowl. Place salmon in a large Ziploc bag. Add marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerate for at least one hour or longer for extra flavor.

Mix brown sugar, smoked paprika, cinnamon, orange peel, remaining 1 teaspoon thyme and salt in a small bowl. Remove salmon from marinade. Place on a greased foil lined baking pan. Discard remaining marinade. Rub top of salmon evenly with smoked paprika mixture.

Roast salmon in preheated 400 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Yield: 4
