This salmon recipe is so quick and easy to make, you can prep and cook it while the smashed spuds are in the oven. And the spice mixture is great to have in the pantry.

Makes 6 servings
Prep Time
Prep to table time: 10 minutes
  • Salmon Bites:
    1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp ground sumac or lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme leaves
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1 tbsp coarse salt
  • 6 skinless salmon filets (5-6 oz each), cut into bite-sized squares
  1. Combine dry ingredients in a food mill or grinder and pulse until combined.

  2. Wipe salmon dry on both sides; rub spice mixture into one side of each piece. Store extra spice mixture in container (in the fridge if lemon zest was used).

  3. In a large frying pan, heat oil over med-ium-high heat. When pan and oil are hot, sear salmon and cook for 2–3 minutes. Flip and continue to cook another 2–3 minutes. (Salmon is cooked well when the white proteins start showing; prior to that it is more medium rare.)
