I had planned to make a ginger glaze or a ginger Greek yogurt topping for some salmon steaks and then I told Zo, "I really just want to go back to my basics on this meal and make it simple." You see after making my boast that I would never make the same meal twice for a year, that ended up being the foundation for Cooking for Zo, I have been trying to push myself more and more to come up with original ideas. I do not use many recipes from my past because I feel that I should try to do things more outside of my idea recipe box. I mean since Zo and I got together I have used seasonings and added ingredients to meals that I would have never used if it had not been for trying to impress her taste buds. I have come to a point now where I want to go back and make some meals how I would have before I started trying to one up myself every meal. That is where this recipe falls. This is one of the ways I use to make salmon before Zo was in my life. It is simple yet tasty. So sorry ginger glaze and Greek yogurt you are going to have to wait till another day, I am taking it back old school!

1 salmon steak
1 tsp Parmesan Reggiano
1/4 tsp parsley flakes
pinch of cumin
1/8 tsp Chili de Arbol chili powder
1/8 tsp garlic powder
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
kosher salt (to taste)
1/4 tsp Italian Volcano lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp olive oil

Preheat oven to broil.

Mix all ingredients (except salmon) in small bowl. Massage mixture into salmon steak, place steak on a baking rack and rack on cookie sheet. Broil in oven for 4-5 minutes, then flip over and broil an additional 4-6 minutes or until done.

Serve hot!
