This Easy Blackened Salmon Dinner is…
…….. also very very good.
Skinless salmon filets work best for this recipe. If you buy the salmon fresh the person helping you will skin them if you ask. If you buy them frozen look for some that have already been skinned.
You could use a lot of different combos of ingredients in the dry “rub” to get a lot of different flavors. Tonight I went with salt, dried basil, cayenne pepper, dried dill weed, lemon pepper and garlic powder. You could mix them all together in a small bowl or just sprinkle them on the filets right out of their containers.
The veggies are going to take a little more time than the salmon so let’s get them going.
Gammy likes pan fried potatoes with onion and fresh rosemary so,,,,,,,,yup, I do it for her pretty regularly. You can cook another veggie right along with the potato and onion if you want. I went with zucchini tonight.
Toss a couple of times to get everything coated evenly.
While the veggies are cooking put a smaller skillet on at medium high and swirl in some olive oil. Top off the salon filets with half of the “rub” on the side without the gray stripe.
Put them in the skillet with the spicy side down and the gray striped side up.
Then spice up the stripe side and cook for 2-3 minutes a side depending on how thick they are and how well done YOU like them.
Toss the veggies a few more times as the salmon cooks. When the veggies and the salmon are done……..
……enjoy your Easy Blackened Salmon Dinner.
A light bodied white like a pinot grigio or a soave or a muscadet would go along real nicely with your Easy Blackened Salmon Dinner.
Oh, yeah and some of Poppop’s easy homemade bread is good tag along.
