    Why always chicken or beef kabobs? This is a delightful rendition for salmon that should please salmon-lovers. My husband and kids always devour the platter with no left-overs. The spices give the dish some presence without overpowering. For 1 and 1/2 pounds of fish, I did increase the salt by another 1/2 teaspoon. I also serve it over some rice pilaf on a big platter. Great presentation!

    Delicious! My niece and I both loved these. The only issue was that the salmon stuck to the grill. Next time I will use some canola oil to grease the grill first.

    Not sure if the celery seeds are what made it bitter yet somewhat sweet, but this recipe did not make my salmon spicy at all. It just tasted weird.

    This rub is crazy delicious. I have used this many times, even without cutting up the salmon fillets, and simply baking it in the oven. I've even doubled the recipe to keep the rub on hand ready to use.
