Blackened salmon is always a hit. Vary the level of spice depending on who will be joining you for dinner.

What you'll need

  • 2 med fillets wild salmon (approximately 12 ounces total)
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder (seasoning)
  • 1 tbsp. dried parsley flakes (seasoning)
  • 1 tbsp. dried basil (seasoning)
  • 2 tsp. thyme (seasoning)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (seasoning)
  • 1 tsp. sea salt (seasoning)
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper (seasoning)
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil (for cooking)


  • Step 1
    Mix seasonings together and spread onto a flat plate. Invert the salmon into the seasoning, then flip over, making sure to coat all areas.
  • Step 2
    Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Before the oil begins to smoke, place salmon flesh-side down in the pan. Turn the salmon after about 3 minutes. Continue cooking until flesh is still a little rare in the middle when tested with a small knife, about 2-3 more minutes. Serve over fresh spring greens with a simple dressing such as vinegar and oil.
  • Step 3
    SUBSTITUTIONS: Use this basic blackening season for fish, chicken, or turkey.
