Sweet and Smoky Salmon -- DELICIOUS!!

In an effort to eat more fish in our household, we took advantage of the specials that our local Hy-Vee store is running this week on some of its seafood.  Last night we tried Sweet and Smoky Salmon, a recipe I found on Hy-Vee's website.  It's super simple and quick!  The whole family (that includes a four- and five-year-old) enjoyed the salmon.

Here's What You Need:

  • 4 (4 oz) salmon fillets
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • Ground cumin, to taste (if you don't have this in the cupboard, the recipe would be okay without it)
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
Here's What You Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place salmon fillets skin-side down on a greased baking sheet.  (**After cooking, I remove the skin**)  Press each fillet with 1/2 T brown sugar.  Sprinkl each lightly with cumin and salt. 
  3. Bake for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  4. Sprinkle with black pepper before serving.

Here is a link to the recipe (  The site give you all the nutrition information -- salmon is loaded with all kinds of good stuff for you!

No, I do not have a picture of these scrum-diddly-umptious fillets.  They were gone too darn quickly.
