Blackened Salmon

  • 4 6 oz. salmon fillets skin on
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil

Blackened Seasoning Blend

  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper

Peach and Avocado Salsa

  • 3 peaches
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbsp red onion diced
  • 1 tbsp jalapeno diced
  • 3 tbsp cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


Make the Blackened Seasoning Blend

  1. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together.

Prepare the Salmon

  1. Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels. Rub the salmon with the seasoning blend on all sides.

  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil is shimmering, lay each fillet flesh side down in the oil and gently press down. Cook for about 3 minutes, then flip and cook for another 4 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish, until flakey.
