DIRECTIONS Sockeye salmon: Cut salmon into 1½-inch portions or leave fillet whole. In a mixing bowl, combine olive oil, spice mixture, garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Coat salmon evenly with spice mixture and marinate 20-60 minutes.

Grilling instructions: Prepare a charcoal or gas grill. Grill salmon over medium-hot heat, flesh-side down for 3-5 minutes or until browned, then flip and cook another 3-5 minutes.

Baking instructions: Heat the oven to 375 F. Place salmon in a shallow baking dish and bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Salmon is done when the flesh flakes easily with a fork and is uniform in color. If checking with an instant-read thermometer, it should reach 145 F at the thickest part.
