- Cooking Time: 10 Minutes
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp light brown sugar
- ½ tsp salt

How to Make It
- Combine the spices, thyme, sugar, and salt in a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder. Grind to a fine powder.
- Rub the mixture over both sides of the fish, cover with plastic wrap, and let rest in the refrigerator while you prepare the broiler.
- Preheat the broiler to its highest setting and line a grill pan with foil. Brush the fish with a little oil on both sides, being careful not to dislodge the spice rub, and broil for 3–4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness.
- Once done, serve the grilled salmon on a plate with the onion, avocado, and cherry tomato salad.
