Blackened Salmon

Blackened Salmon Filet

Blackened Salmon Filet


two 6oz salmon filets
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil and 1 Tbs for brushing the fish

Blackened seasoning:
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon ground basil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon paprika


Mixed all dried spices together thoroughly and set aside. Brush the salmon filets lightly with one tablespoon of olive oil, then season the filets evenly with the dry spices. Heat the olive oil in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium-high flame. Add the salmon and cook each side until slightly blackened (not burnt), about 3-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the filets. The fish is done when it is no longer translucent and flakes easily with a fork. Remove the fish from the pan and serve with a fresh salad. Bon Appetit!
