Here are 3 delicious and easy ways to pair Rub With Love and Bristol Bay sockeye salmon.


1. Grill it

Grilling salmon is simple and adds a great flavor to your fish. 

Preheat grill to 400-450 F

Pat dry the salmon and brush with oil on both sides. Coat salmon with spice rub.

Place salmon, skin-side down, on grill and cover. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until done.

2. Roast it

If you’ve got an oven and a baking dish, then you’re all set for roasting salmon!

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Line a baking dish with foil. Coat salmon with cooking oil on both sides and coat salmon with spice rub.

Place salmon skin-side down in baking dish and bake for 10-15 minutes or until done.

Remove from oven and serve immediately.

3. Pan sear it

This is a good method for beginners. We recommend using a seasoned cast iron skillet, but any non-stick pan will do.

Coat salmon on both sides with cooking oil. Add spice rub to salmon.

Add enough cooking oil to coat the bottom of the pan and heat over medium-high heat.

Place salmon, skin-side up, into pan and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.

Carefully flip salmon and cook for another 3 minutes or until done.

Suggested side dishes: Caesar salad and roasted potatoes.
