Ingredients
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons minced onion
Directions
  1. 1. Combine the black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, onion powder, and salt in a small bowl. Stir in 1 tablespoon of olive oil to make a paste. Spread the paste all over the salmon fillets, and set aside to marinate at room temperature 30 minutes.
  2. 2. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until tender and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Heat a separate non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the salmon fillets in the hot skillet until golden brown on each side, and no longer translucent in the center, about 4 minutes per side. Pour the browned onions and olive oil over the salmon fillets to serve.
