Broiled Salmon with Asparagus and Lemon Risotto
-1 to 1 1/2 pounds salmon, skinned
-1 tablespoon coriander
-1 teaspoon ground cumin
-2 teaspoons onion powder
-1 teaspoon garlic powder
-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
-2 lemons (1 juiced and 1 sliced)
-Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your broiler on high and position your oven rack to the middle/lower half of the oven.
Combine all of the spices in one bowl. Add the juice of one lemon and stir together until all of the spices start to clump together. Keep adding as much or as little lemon juice as you wish to the spices. Using a pastry brush or your hands, rub the spice mixture all over the salmon. Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper to taste. Finally, slice the other lemon into several round pieces and lay them over the salmon.
Once ready, take a baking dish and line it with tin foil. Place the salmon on the tin foil and cook in the broiler for about 15 to 20 minutes. My broiler takes a little longer so just be sure to keep an eye on your salmon.
When done, leaving the lemon slices on, remove the salmon from the oven and serve over a bed of lemon risotto and roasted asparagus.
