Serving a big side of salmon is my favorite way to feed 6+ people! It’s a no-brainer when it comes to prep work and you can serve it up alongside a big loaded salad and a few of your favorite sides like this or this.

You’ll have a little bit of the spice mixture left over after whipping this up – and it’s great on some grilled chicken, steak, shrimp or another fish! You could even sprinkle it over a sheet pan of veggies before roasted to give everything a good kick!
