Roasted Cumin Crusted Salmon with Orange Chipotle Butter
From: Grill It!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Roasting time: 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish
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.
