I am all about multi-tasking these days. So why should I expect less from my food? Here's a spicy rub to use on salmon steaks to reap the benefits from both the hot spices and the omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon. Now that is multi-tasking food! Plus, this makes a tasty main dish and is a nice break from the standard lemon dill routine most often used for salmon.

Spicy Paprika Rub
from Everyday Food by Martha Stewart
What you need:
4 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons coarse salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
What you do:
- Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.
- Rub the rub on both sides of salmon steak.
- Lightly oil grill or grill pan, and cook until salmon flakes with a form. About 4 minutes per side.
This rub works well with other meats, but use fattier cuts since paprika has a strong taste. Try it on skirt steak, pork loin, salmon fillets, or whole chickens for roasting.
