Easy Blackened Salmon Dinner – 20 Minutes – Gluten Free – Paleo

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.

 

Let’s get this Easy Blackened Salmon Dinner going

The veggies are going to take a little more time than the salmon so let’s get them going first.

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.

Put a skillet on at medium high with enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Slice up the veggies and put them into the skillet with the rosemary. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
