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


¼ teaspoon Garlic Powder

¼ 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

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.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add a liberal drizzle of olive oil and allow it to get hot. 

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.
