- 1.5 lbs wild salmon fillets
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- 1/8 tsp chili powder (more to taste)
- 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
- 2 zucchini, cut into noodles
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 lemon
Mix together the smoked paprika, salt, garlic powder, pepper, onion powder, oregano, and chili powder.
Pat the salmon dry using a paper towel and press the spice mixture onto the salmon on both sides. (If your salmon has skin, just coat one side of the fish.)
Prepare your zucchini noodles using a spiralizer, sharp knife, or vegetable peeler. If time permits, sprinkle the zucchini noodles with salt and place in a colander. This will remove some of the moisture and result in a firmer noodle.
Heat half the olive oil over medium high heat in a heavy skillet. Cook the salmon for 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and set aside. Tent with foil to keep warm.
Add the remaining olive oil to the pan along with the garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Add the zucchini noodles and tomatoes. Cook for 3-5 minutes until al dente. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve salmon over noodles and enjoy!
