Roasted Cumin Crusted Salmon wiith Orange Chipotle Butter

Roasted Cumin Crusted Salmon with Orange Chipotle Butter

Grill It!

Prep time: 5 minutes

Roasting time: 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish

Serves :4

3 tbsp cumin seeds, toasted and cracked (I pulse them briefly in a coffee grinder)
4 salmon filets (mahi-mahi, halibut or other firm white fish)
2 tbsp olive oil
Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 pats of orange chipotle butter

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C (you could prepare it on the grill as well)

2. Toast the cumin seeds, and pulse briefly in a coffee grinder just to get the flavors even more potent.

3. Roast in an oven proof pan for 10-15 minutes until the center is no longer opaque, but still juicy.

Top each filet with a pat or two of orange chipotle butter. I like to serve it with a romaine salad or pasta with the Cumin Lime Dressing.

What else is on your salmon besides cumin seed? It looks a lot like the salmon I do with a mix of sundried tomatoes and parsley.

Avra, most of the color you see is in the orange chipotle butter. Just click on the link for all the ingredients and how to prepare it.
