A sweet and spicy rub gives this quick salmon dish fantastic flavor. Paired with a green veggie and rice, it’s a delightful weeknight dinner that’s special enough for company. –Michele Doucette of Stephenville, Newfoundland

"I liked it, but it doesn't keep well. I oftentimes cook and my husband eats later when he gets home from work. It was very overpowering after re-heating when my husband got home. It was very good when fresh tho."

"I think the rub is okay, but it makes WAAAAAYYY too much for just 1 lb of fish. I want to try it again with half all the ingredients and definitely less cumin & chili."
