1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. hot or mild chili powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Makes: 12 servings
Serving Size: 4 oz.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine all the rub ingredients. Place the salmon skin side down on the prepared baking sheet. Spread the rub on the flesh side of the salmon.
2. Roast the salmon for 17 to 20 minutes or until cooked through (the flesh will be opaque and feel firm to the touch). Turn the oven to broil. Broil the salmon an additional 3 to 5 minutes, until it is slightly golden.
3. Place the whole salmon on a decorative, food-safe platter. Top with the cilantro sprigs and lemon wedges.
