Spring Mix with Salmon

Simple Spicy Herbed Salmon

1 lb. salmon fillet
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. thyme
2 tsp dill weed
1 tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
1-2 tsp salt (to taste)
½ tsp ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put salmon in pan, skin side down. In a small bowl, mix all spices together. Sprinkle the salmon evenly with the spice mix, about 1-2 tsp. per pound of salmon. (The recipe for the spice mix will make 8-9 tsp.)

Cover the pan and salmon with foil and bake for 12 minutes. Remove the cover and bake another 8-10 min. or until the flesh is opaque pink and flaky. Lift the fish away from the skin with a spatula.

For the salad I've been enjoying Dole Organic Spring Mix with Herbs
I also like to add in artichoke hearts and capers for a little zip.
Because I am leary of salad dressings I put mine in a small side dish and dip. For this salad I use Newman's Own Light Balsamic Vinaigrette.

I love the photo. This looks very good. I never think of buying and making salmon. I am always in favor of recipes with photos on blogs. Hooray!
