Blackened Salmon Fillets Recipe
Fire up succulent salmon with an exciting blend of Cajun-style spices!
VERY smokey, do not cook on high. I used med-high and it set off my smoke alarm. I would cook on low-medium. Otherwise very good.
Simply Awesome! This was so easy to prepare and cook. My husband was wanting some blackened Salmon like he had tasted in a restaurant and I gave this a try. He couldn't stop raving how great this was. I used blackening seasoning instead of all the other spices. It was much easier than mixing up the others in a bowl.
FANTASTIC. I omitted the cayenne pepper in the interests of kids eating it and it wasn't missed at all. I also used only 3-4T of butter instead of the whole 1/2 cup - no need to drizzle butter all over it - it's already being cooked in it! Again - WONDERFUL recipe!
Blackened Salmon is my favorite and this recipe is great. I don't use butter though, I use olive oil and after blackening in the pan I transfer the salmon to a baking sheet and finish them in the oven.
This is a good recipe, but I definitely agree to cut the cayenne in half. I cut the salt in half too. Blackening seasoning is VERY spicy, so it is best to cook it outside (in a cast iron skillet of course) on the side burner of your grill if you have one. Otherwise, you and everyone else in your house will be sneezing and coughing up a storm!
Turned out great. I doubled the ingredient amounts and it covered over 2 1/2 lb salmon fillets.
I don't eat seafood but those who did said it was great! I did not use the cayenne because we were out. Instead of plain salt (again- out), I used a garlic salt mix. I used a cast iron pan and cooked the fillets over the grill, thanks to another review. I've never done that before but it sure was great suggestion to prevent the house from heating up from using the stove. I also used the recipe to cook myself some chicken thighs, which were very yummy. I enjoyed the chicken over a salad of mixed greens with light ranch-- perfect for a summer night! Thank you for sharing this one, I'll keep it for both salmon and chicken!
