Indian-Spiced Salmon

While the state of fish in the world is complicated, the West Coast has one that is unequivocally in great shape ― wild Alaska salmon. As those naturally bright-red fillets start appearing at seafood counters this season, all you need is a fresh spice blend to dress one up for dinner.

Ours, inspired by a packaged blend from an Indian grocery store, uses staples from the spice rack, paired with a little brown sugar, butter, and lemon, for a simple glaze with complex flavor.
