Crazy Salmon


This is a recipe for salmon that I have come across from simply experimenting with different spices combinations. I may be breaking some rules, but it tastes good to me and my family. However the picture I have our from a version of this where the fish was stale. The fish looked fresh, but tastes off when cooked. The spices can’t seem to save a super stale fish though. I would think you would need to marinate for that. Although stale fish probably isn’t the healthiest thing either. This flavor is almost a sweet cinnamon like taste. Normally I don’t measure ingredients, so this is not consistent each time. Sometimes its is slightly spicy, sometimes its mild.
