These days the rage is all about getting more omega 3 in your diet. They put it in nearly everything- butter, eggs, breads, crackers, pizzas, chips, wraps... The problem is that the cheapest way for companies to do this is using flax, and somewhere along the way I developed a flax allergy.
Lucky for me I can still eat the food with the highest levels of omega 3- fish! Salmon especially has more omega 3 than any other food out there and it's delicious as well. I usually make a maple garlic salmon but I recently ran out of pure maple syrup and wanted to try something new with what we had. So...
Lulu's sweet zinger salmon rub
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried garlic flakes
1/4 (or more) teaspoon hot pepper flakes (1/4 for mild, as much as you want for hot!)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix the spices well, breaking up any brown sugar clumps.
Sprinkle or rub the mix onto the salmon portions before cooking.
Bake at 350 until fish flakes easily with a fork. I served ours with an assortment of local vegetables roasted in olive oil and the meal was incredible!
