Grilled Cajun Salmon

Today was a beautiful day! The perfect day to grill out. I happened to have some salmon in the freezer that I had bought on sale a while back, and we decided to throw it on the grill for dinner tonight. It turned out great!! Here's how we cooked it...

2 salmon fillets
1/2 tbsp paprika
1/2 tbsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tbsp black pepper
a bit of minced garlic
1/2 tbsp dried oregano
olive oil for drizzling

1. Mix together all ingredients except salmon and oil.
2. Spread the rub over over the salmon fillets, coating both sides well. Let sit for 1-2 hours to enhance flavor.
3. Heat grill on low-medium low heat. Drizzle olive oil over each side of the salmon.
4. Grill 5 minutes on each side until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Enjoy! We had it with parmesan rice and steamed vegetables. Yum!
