Grilled Salmon with Barbeque Spice Rub


(sorry for the blurry pic- my camera died before I could take more!)

When Scott said he would grill this salmon for me, I was tempted to use a barbeque sauce but decided to try this dry rub instead.  I am glad I did. It was so good!! It is a perfect combination of sweet and spicy. I added a little garlic powder to this but didn’t measure it.  I didn’t get a good picture of it but the recipe is very blogworthy!


  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  kosher salt
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  dark brown sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1  teaspoon  dried thyme, crushed
  • 3/4  teaspoon  coarsely ground black pepper
  • 3/4  teaspoon  sweet paprika
  • 3/4  teaspoon  chili powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1  (3-pound) center-cut salmon fillet, skinned


1. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

2. Combine salt and next 7 ingredients (through cinnamon); rub salt mixture over fish.

3. Grill fish for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
