Valhalla is a very important part of Norse mythology. Valhöll, which means “the hall of the fallen”, is the hall where the god Odin houses the dead whom he deems worthy of dwelling with him. So what does Valhalla have to do with Salmon?! My very best friend since Elementary school used to summer in Alaska and she has brought home some of the best Salmon we have ever tasted. The name of the lodge is ,you guessed it, Valhalla! So this is my tribute to a place where the Salmon is good to enough for Odin.
The flavor has a hint of smoky sweetness from the brown sugar, cacao, paprika, and cumin with just a touch of heat from red pepper flakes. Our Valhalla Salmon spice rub marries with the juices of salmon to form a delicious glaze and is a flavorful departure from the usual citrus-based rubs so common with fish. A unique flavor for Salmon indeed!
