This recipe is for one per my blog, Sola Gina nella Cucina, but easy to scale up for more. In search of new ways to use Fennel Pollen, I created this recipe; it is yummy and could be called Caramel Salmon! If you do not have fennel pollen, you may substitute Chinese 5 spice powder. Enjoy


Number of serving: 1
1/2 pound fresh salmon fillet

1/2 teaspoon each

garlic powder

chipotle pepper seasoning and fennel pollen,

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon sherry vinegar

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

olive oil


  • preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Mix paprika, garlic powder, chipotle pepper seasoning, fennel pollen, cumin and brown sugar together.
  • Divide spice mixture in half.
  • Brush salmon with olive oil and half of spice mixture.
  • Whisk remaining spice mixture with honey, sherry vinegar and mayonnaise until smooth.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon oil in an ovenproof skillet and saute salmon, skin side up for 1-2 minutes. Turn and spread a little of sauce mixture over top.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes and serve with remaining sauce
