Am I the only one who reads ‘Simple Salmon’ and starts reciting ‘Simple Simon met a pie man going to the fair?’
I am. Okay, off the crazy train and back to the recipe.
Sorry this Mouthwatering Monday post is a bit late. I’ve had my hands full, Nathan’s pain is pretty bad and between him, the kids, and some computer issues… it’s been a long couple of days.
I made this simple salmon last night and it was melt in your mouth exquisite. Seriously y’all, I am talking simple, fabulous and oh yes, EASY!
* 1 salmon fillet from your seafood deli. (I chose a large one, about 14 oz)
* 2 Tbsp olive oil
* 1 Tbsp butter
* 1 Tbsp Old Bay Blackened Seasoning or whichever brand you prefer
I cut my salmon into two equal (roughly 7 oz each) portions, leaving the skin on I rubbed olive oil over the whole of each piece of salmon.
Next, sprinkle about 1 Tbsp of Blackened Seasoning over the top (non skin) of the fish.
Heat your skillet over medium heat and melt the butter in the skillet.
Place each fillet skin side down in your skillet. Cook for about 4-6 minutes, or until you can see that the lower 1/2 of the fish has turned ‘white’.
Flip the fish over and cook until the ‘white’ meets. This indicates the salmon is thoroughly cooked.
The salmon will flake away when touched with a fork.
This is simple and delicious and just moister than you can even imagine.
You could use any seasoning blend you wanted, we just love blackened salmon.
I served this with steamed asparagus.
One bunch of asparagus washed.
I put it in my steamer, topped with 1 Tbsp butter, divided and about 5 shakes of my salt/pepper/garlic seasoning.
I steamed it until it was just crisp tender and oh my word y’all, this meal was fabulous!! Light, satisfying and full of all those good nutrients, and omegas and stuff 😉
