  • In a small bowl, add paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, dried, salt and pepper. Mix all together well.
  • Brush ½ tablespoon of olive oil on top of salmon fillets.
  • Sprinkle the spice mix on top of the salmon. Using your fingers, tap the spicy mix on top of the salmon.
  • In a non-stick skillet or cast iron skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Wait 2 minutes and then add the salmon fillets and cook for about 3-5 minutes. Time will depend on the thickness of the salmon fillets. Reduce the heat to medium-low and flip the salmon fillets over and cook for more 3-4 minutes.
  • Before serve, garnish with parsley. Serve it with steamed broccoli, mashed cauliflower or roasted veggies. Enjoy!
