10 Minute Blackened Salmon


Blackened Salmon

SERVES 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon

plus 1 teaspoon sweet paprika

  • 1 teaspoon

garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon

dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon

kosher salt

  • 3/4 teaspoon

cayenne pepper

  • 2 tablespoons

olive oil

  • 4 (6-ounce) skin-on salmon fillets

  • 1 medium lemon, cut into wedges

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place the paprika, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and cayenne in a shallow bowl or plate and stir to combine. Press the flesh side of each salmon fillet into the seasoning to evenly coat it. Alternatively, you can pat the seasoning mixture evenly onto the flesh side of each salmon fillet.

  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium until shimmering. Add the fillets, skin-side up, and cook until blackened, about 3 minutes. Flip the fillets and continue to cook until cooked through to your liking, 5 to 7 minutes depending on the thickness of your fillets. If the skin is starting to burn before the fillets are cooked, turn the heat down to medium-low. If the fillets are extra thick (1 1/2 to 2-inches thick in the middle), you may need to turn the fillets on their sides for a minute on each side to cook them through. An instant-read thermometer into the middle of the thickest fillet should register 120°F to 130°F for medium-rare or 135°F to 145°F for more well-done. Transfer the fillets to individual plates and serve with lemon wedges.
