Here is how the experts at Spices Inc. recommend using this seasoning!
"We like to use about ½ to 1 tsp of seasoning per 4 ounces of salmon. We always recommend going with less seasoning than more to start as you can always add more.
We love this rub as the ideal compliment to salmon. A quick sprinkle and rub 10 minutes prior to cooking and you're good to go. Our Wild for Salmon spice rub marries with the juices of salmon to form a delicious glaze (when baked or grilled) and this is a flavorful departure from the usual lemon and herb seasonings so common with salmon.
We especially like to grill our salmon and have found leaving the skin on makes it less likely the fish will fall through the grill rack. A general guideline is to grill your salmon for approximately 8-10 minutes per inch of thickness. For grilling salmon filets expect them to cook in approximately 4-5 minutes. Do not turn over when grilling. For salmon steaks expect cooking time to be 4-7 minutes. Turn once to cook on both sides."
This seasoning is hand blended with brown sugar, paprika, sea salt, black pepper, cacao powder, cumin, and red pepper flakes.
