Blackened Salmon

Cajun blackened salmon- 254


Ingredients (Serves 2)

1. Salmon – 1 medium fillet, sliced into three equal-sized pieces (Around 400 gm)

2. Oil – 2 – 3 tsp 

Butter – 1 – 1.5 tbsp

Spice mix

3. Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp

    Chilly powder – 1/2 tsp

    Paprika – 1/2 tsp

    Cumin powder – 1/4 tsp

    Garlic powder – 1/2 tsp

    Onion powder – 1/4 tsp

    Dried oregano – 1/8 tsp

    Dried thyme – 1/8 tsp

    Salt – A little less than 1/2 tsp

Mix all the above ingredients for the spice mix.


1. In a small bowl, mix all the spices mentioned under spice mix.

2. Brush salmon pieces on both sides with 2 – 3 tsp melted butter / oil. Sprinkle them evenly with spice mixture, on all sides. Rub well. 

3. Heat 1 – 1.5 tbsp butter in a cast iron pan or nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Place the salmon fillet in the hot pan. Allow it to cook for about  30 seconds on high, then turn the heat down to medium and allow the salmon to cook for a few minutes on each side or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork. Serve hot. We had it with Israeli couscous salad and roasted vegetables.


If your salmon fillet is very thick, sear both sides of the fillet over high heat and then transfer to an oven heated at 375 F and cook until completely done, about  15  minutes.
