Moroccan Spiced Salmon Ingredients

Seared Salmon Ingredients

  • 4 4 oz Sizzlefish Salmon Fillets
  • 1-2 TBSP Olive Oil
  • Moroccan Spice Mix

Preperation Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Lightly oil a large heavy-bottomed roasting pan or 15 inch cast iron skillet.
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts to approximately the same size.
  3. Next, place the sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, onions, garlic and 1 tablespoon olive oil in the prepared pan. Season liberally with the Moroccan spice mixture. Stir well to evenly coat the vegetable mixture.
  4. Place the pan in the oven and roast the vegetables for 30 minutes. Stir the mixture after 30 minutes, then place the vegetables back in the oven for approximately 20 to 30 more minutes or until caramelized and cooked through.
  5. When the vegetables have about 20 minutes left to roast, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. While the oil is heating, lightly oil the salmon fillets with the remaining olive oil and season them with about 1 - 2 tablespoons of the spice mixture or enough to liberally coat the salmon fillets. When the oil is heated, add the salmon fillets seasoning side down.
  6. Sear the salmon fillets without moving for 3-4 minutes or until they are crisp and release easily from the pan. Flip the fillets and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until they are an internal temperature of 145°.
  7. Serve the seared salmon fillets over the roasted vegetables.
