Blackened salmon with cajun spices

Posted in Mains (Fish) by amuse-bouche on October 9, 2009

I saw this super easy recipe for cajun spiced salmon in Real Simple magazine (paper copy). Take a filet of salmon (I used wild, but Atlantic farmed would be fine also), shake on some cajun spices (I just used a President’s Choice grinder mix – I had to grind it rather than take a pinch and press it in, but it was ok anyway) and 10  minutes later you have a salmon dinner. I ate it with steamed swiss chard which I doused with a bit of olive oil and lemon juice also. It was quite good and tied me over for well over 5 hours.

Here are some pics, before and after:

    I would like the recipe for blackened salmon. I do have others but would like to see how yours is different. I do not know how to access it. I click on Mains – Fish; the picture comes up with others but nothing to access the recipe.
    Please advise.
    Thanks

      Hey there,

      Sorry the recipe isn’t as obvious as the other posts.. it is sort of hidden in the first paragraph: Take a filet of salmon (I used wild, but Atlantic farmed would be fine also), shake on some cajun spices (I just used a President’s Choice grinder mix – I had to grind it rather than take a pinch and press it in, but it was ok anyway) and 10 minutes later you have a salmon dinner. I ate it with steamed swiss chard which I doused with a bit of olive oil and lemon juice also. It was quite good and tied me over for well over 5 hours.

      The original recipe can be found here: http://www.realsimple.com/food-recipes/browse-all-recipes/blackened-salmon-broccoli-rabe-00000000011457/index.html
