I love trying different salmon dishes and this one will definitely stay in the rotation. Bursting with flavor this is an incredible dish perfect for impressing dinner guests.
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground ancho chili pepper or chili powder
2 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed
Nonstick olive-oil cooking spray
4 skinless salmon fillets (5-6 ounces each)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro sprigs
1. Preheat broiler. In a small bowl, combine sugar, salt, cumin, and chili powder. Cut sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch-thick slices and place on the greased rack of a broiler pan. Coat sweet potatoes with cooking spray and sprinkle with half the spice mixture. Broil 10 minutes, turning once halfway though.
2. Rinse and dry salmon; coat with remaining spice mixture. In a large skillet, cook fish in hot olive oil over medium heat for 4 minutes per side, or until it flakes easily with a fork.
3. Sprinkle sweet potatoes and salmon with cilantro before serving.
