How to Make It
  1. Prepare the grill for cooking. Grind all the dry ingredients together in a mortar and pestle to a fine consistency.
  2. Rub all sides of the salmon fillets with the spice rub, cover, and rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour to let the flavors soak into the fish. Drizzle each piece of fish with a little oil and rub it gently all over.
  3. Grill the salmon on the barbecue for 2–3 minutes on each side, until brown and crispy, but still moist. Serve with lemonor lime wedges to squeeze over.
