Blackened Salmon

A spicy seafood alternative...very addictive! Just as good for halibut, red snapper, or any fish.

Spice mix: mix proportions to your taste and to suit your guests. This would be enough for 3 pounds of filets.

  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds (like black licorice, very distinct flavour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less depending how hot you like it)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Fish preparation:

  • Baste fillets with olive oil - cover one side with spice mix
  • Heat frying pan on high with light olive oil, let it get nice and hot.
  • Sizzle spice side down only for 1 minute, then throw into pre-heated oven (about 375) spice side up -- cook thin fillets for 5 minutes, up to about 8 minutes for thicker fillets. Very finicky here so keep an eye on it -- it is a sin to overcook fish!
  • Remove and melt bit of butter on top
  • Serve over rice of course!
  • Very addictive!

Thanks to Dave Hadley for the tasty recipe.
