Blackened Salmon

Blackened Salmon


  • 8 oz. Filet of Salmon
  • 1 tbsp. Spice Bouquet Blackening Seasoning (to coat)
  • 1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Method of Preparation:
1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and pre-heat your cast iron frying pan or a sauté pan on top of the stove to medium high. Thinly coat the heated sauté pan with the extra virgin olive oil. Your pan will be ready for the salmon when you see slight rolls in the oil. You do NOT want the oil to smoke.

2. Coat one side of the salmon with half of the Spice Bouquet Blackening Seasoning. Place the seasoned side of the salmon face down on the heated frying pan. Then coat the top side of the salmon with the other half of the seasoning while the Salmon is in the pan.

3. Pan sear the coated filet of Salmon on top of the stove for about 2 minutes per side to achieve the blackened crust, then place the pan in the pre-heated oven for 7 minutes until the Salmon is fully cooked.

4. When done, the Salmon should flake easily when tested with a fork. Baking times in the oven will vary depending on the thickness and density of the fish. Do not overcook.

Yield: 2 servings

Note: Once you place the salmon in the pre-heated cast iron pan DO NOT MOVE IT for 2 minutes- or the salmon will start to tear.
