10 Minute Entree: Blackened Salmon

I had one of those nights where I completely forgot to set out anything to thaw for dinner that night. Instead of running out to grab something though, I went and grabbed a couple frozen salmon fillets and made a quick and healthy dinner for us, incorporating some leftover sides from previous meals.

Blackened Salmon

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 tbsp Zatarain’s blackening seasoning

Preheat a griddle or skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Coat surface with oil of your choice. Currently I am using coconut oil for just about everything. Season both sides of the salmon fillets with Zatarain’s blackened seasoning and then add to your heated griddle.

Cook on one side for 4 minutes, flip and cook for 3 more minutes, until skin is nice and crispy.

Plate those babies and serve and you’ve got a delicious entree in 10 minutes! It doesn’t get much easier than that. I love having fast ready-to-go options in my freezer for when I’m pressed for time. If this happens to you more often than not, then I suggest keeping your favorite fish in the freezer. They thaw out very quickly and cook up fast. Have a wonderful day!
