How to Make It
  1. Combine the spices, thyme, sugar, and salt in a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder. Grind to a fine powder.
  2. Rub the mixture over both sides of the fish, cover with plastic wrap, and let rest in the refrigerator while you prepare the broiler.
  3. 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.
  4. Once done, serve the grilled salmon on a plate with the onion, avocado, and cherry tomato salad.
