Blackened Salmon

I love well balanced meals! The whole thing about dieting is that there’s no such thing as the cure-all diet. I’ve tried keto, paleo, Atkins, etc. but the diet that works best is loading up on the veggies and making the star of the dish a protein that you love. So tonight I made blackened salmon with cauliflower risotto and roasted Brussels sprouts. It’s packed with Omega 3’s, vitamins, healthy fats and it has FLAVOR! This salmon recipe is so quick and delicious!

  • 2 – 4 oz Salmon Fillets
  • Rub:
    • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon Chili Powder
    • Liberal pinch of Onion Powder
    • Liberal pinch of Cumin
    • Liberal pinch of Cayenne Pepper
    • Pinch of Ground Thyme
    • Small pinch of Brown Sugar
    • Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. Combine the spices and seasonings in a bowl. Add a drizzle of oil over the fillets and sprinkle the spice mixture over top. Rub into the meat and set aside.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add a liberal drizzle of olive oil and allow it to get hot. 
  3. Add the salmon, skin side down and cook until the skin loosens from the pan, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and sear the flesh side until cooked through, another 2-5 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillet.
  4. Enjoy!
