Sometimes when your order a meat “blackened”, you get something so spicy it is inedible. This spice combination perfectly compliments the fish. I plan on adding this to my rotation of reliable recipes.

Blackened Salmon

  • 1/2 tbsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb fresh salmon filet, boneless and skinless

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine all spices. Season each piece of fish with the rub. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the butter and oil. Once the butter has melted, add the fish and cook about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the whole pan to the oven and cook for another 4 to 6 minutes.
