Smoky Spice Rubbed Grilled Salmon with Black Beans & Corn

I found this recipe on Pinterest and knew I had to try it when I had the chance! It is delicious... A nice change from how we usually cook our salmon... And I really enjoyed the black beans & corn with it... I had sour cream & tostitos with the meal as well. Will be making this meal again for sure!

Adapted from  Skinnytaste


For the salmon:
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Juice of one lime
Olive oil spray
Lime wedge for serving

For the black beans & corn:
1 (15.5 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups frozen corn kernels
1/4 cup red onion, minced
3 Tbsp cilantro, finely minced
1 tsp olive oil
2 Tbsp lime juice
Salt, to taste


Combine all spices in a small bowl. Squeeze lime juice all over salmon then rub the spices to completely coat. Set aside to rest about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and sauté for about 2 minutes, add beans, corn and salt and cook till heated thru, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat and toss in cilantro and lime juice. Makes 3 1/2 cups.

Heat BBQ or you can heat a lightly oiled grill pan on the stove top inside. When hot, grill salmon about 5 minutes on each side or until salmon is cooked through. Serve with black beans & corn.
