  • 1 lb salmon fillet
  • blackening seasoning I like Zatteran's found at most supermarkets
  • olive oil



  1. Remove salmon from package and rub with blackening seasoning on skin free side. Use just enough to cover the piece of fish but not so much that you can't see the pink behind the seasoning.
  2. Heat grill pan on med heat and brush lightly with olive oil (very lightlPlace salmon skin side down on pan and cook on med heat until half of the salmon (from the bottom uis opaque.
  3. Flip salmon and remove skin (it will peel off very easily and usually in one piece- I place it in a small plastic bag and tie it before dropping it in the garbage can to reduce fishy odorCook another 5-8 minutes until the entire piece of fish is opaque and runs with a white milk like substance (healthy omega fatty acids)
  4. Serve immediately with rice or potato and veggie of your choice for a healthy meal that tastes like you're at a restaurant even when you cooked it yourself!
