Spicy Cornmeal-Crusted Alaska Salmon
Spice is nice especially with Alaska Salmon!
Serves: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


1/3 cup medium to coarse-grind cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoons favorite spicy seasoning (Cajun, Mexican, Caribbean Jerk, Italian, curry blend, etc.)
1 teaspoon salt
4 skinless Alaska salmon fillets, 4 to 6 ounces each, fresh, thawed or frozen
1 tablespoon olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil
Nonstick cooking spray

Blend the cornmeal, seasoning, and salt in zip-top plastic bag. Rinse the Alaska salmon fillets under cold water, then toss in cornmeal coating.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet to medium-high heat and add the fillets to the pan. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Spray-coat tops of the fillets. Turn the salmon over gently and cook an additional 4 minutes.

For fresh or thawed fish: Check browned fillets for doneness. Cook just until the fish is opaque throughout.

For frozen fish: Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Transfer the browned fillets to a baking sheet and cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes. Cook just until the fish is opaque throughout.
