Recipe: Blackened Salmon

My little sister came in town for the weekend. So I bought a few salmon filets on Friday just in case we needed a quick dinner. Luckily for me, we didn't use them so I was able to use them tonight!

This recipe was so simple, so quick, and so delicious! I have never cooked salmon on my skillet before and I was impressed with how they turned out.

Blackened Salmon


2 tbsp. paprika
1 tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. light brown sugar
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
4 (6 oz.) salmon fillets

- In a small bowl, combine all ingredients, except salmon. Rub mixture on both sides of salmon.

- In a large nonstick skillet, cook salmon over medium heat for about 4-5 minutes on each side or until desired doneness.

Makes 4 servings.

The rub added a sweet, tangy flavor to the salmon. It was so easy to throw together and just as quick to cook. I will be cooking this again and even trying it out with other fish! Did I mention its only 223 Calories a serving?
