Spicy Salmon and Brussel sprouts

An easy one pan recipe that has flavours guaranteed to leave you craving more.

I bought the famous cast iron skillet recently. it is a great investment to make in your kitchen as it reduces the number of pans/ trays you have to use and it distributes heat in a good manner, however, I have to warn you though iron skillets need a lot of maintenance and are very hard to clean. Especially that you will have to dry it in a certain way and season it every time you use it to avoid rusting! 

For my first recipe using the Iron skillet, I made spicy salmon & Brussels sprouts
