Serves 4
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes

1/3 cup medium to coarse-grind cornmeal
1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons favorite spicy seasoning (Cajun, Mexican, Caribbean Jerk, Italian, curry blend, etc.)
1 teaspoon salt
4 skinless Alaska Salmon fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
1 Tablespoon olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil
Nonstick cooking spray


Blend cornmeal, seasoning, and salt in zip-top plastic bag.  Rinse Alaska Salmon fillets under cold water, then toss in cornmeal coating.  

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet to medium-high heat; add fillets to pan.  Cook until browned, about 3 minutes.  Spray-coat tops of fillets.  Turn salmon over gently and cook an additional 4 minutes.    
•    Fresh/thawed fish: Check browned fillets for doneness.  Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
•    Frozen fish:  Preheat oven to 425ºF.  Transfer browned fillets to baking sheet and cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes.  Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
