I'm a San Francisco city girl who loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors. My cooking style focuses on healthy recipes, but I have a huge sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting! When I'm not cooking/eating/photographing/writing about food, I'm at the hospital full-time or running. I'm addicted to blogging about food - www.mysanfranciscokitchen.com

Today I am sharing one of my favorite go-to dishes to make when guests come to our place for dinner: spicy paprika salmon. This healthy seafood dish takes under 30 minutes to prepare (except for waiting for it to marinade in the refrigerator). The Magic Bullet makes a delicious marinade for fresh, wild-caught salmon fillets, which are then fried in oil until flaky. This special marinade is made up of a blend of garlic powder, paprika, red and black pepper, and dried herbs. To balance out the heat from the spices in this marinade, I like to serve it with plain rice or mashed potatoes and bland vegetables. This spicy salmon will be the star of the meal.
