12–16 ounces salmon filet
2 tbsp oil (avocado is best, other cooking oils will work)
1/4 tsp onion powder
3/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Combine all the spices into a small bowl or glass dish. Mix to combine.
Pat salmon dry and rub spice blend onto one side of the salmon. If you are using a skin-on filet, rub the spice onto the flesh side.
Pour oil into a non-stick pan or cast-iron skillet over medium/high heat.
Once the oil is hot, place the salmon, seasoned side down onto the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes on this site, then flip over.
Cooking time might vary depending on the thickness of salmon and how well you like your salmon cooked. I like mine fully cooked, so it was cooked 2 minutes on one side and 3 minutes on the other side until no longer pink in the middle.
Remove from heat and serve immediately.
