10-Minute Skillet Blackened Salmon

This salmon is super-quick and foolproof, with the perfect spicy-sweet-savory balance. You can sub your favorite Cajun seasoning blend.

2 servings

  1. Pat the salmon fillets dry. Combine the spices thoroughly, and coat the salmon with spice mixture on all sides.
  2. In a heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until it’s shimmering but not smoking. Add the salmon skin side down and cook for 3 minutes (be careful that skin is browning, not burning). Lower the heat to medium and flip the salmon. Cook another 3 minutes or just until salmon is cooked through and the top is nicely browned. Serve with lemon wedges.
