Gluten Free Blackened Salmon Fillets
2 Tablespoons of Ground Paprika
1 Tablespoon Ground Cayenne Pepper
1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
2 Teaspoons Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Ground White Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1/4 Teaspoon Dried Thyme
1/4 Teaspoon Dried Basil
1/4 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
4 Salmon Fillets, Skin and Bones Removed
1/2 Cup Butter, Melted
1. In a small bowl, mix paprika, cayenne pepper, onion powder, salt, white pepper, black pepper, thyme, basil and oregano.
2. Brush salmon fillets on both sides with 1/4 cup butter, and sprinkle evenly with the cayenne pepper mixture. Drizzle one side of each fillet with 1/2 remaining butter.
3. In a large, heavy skillet over high heat, cook salmon, butter side down, until blackened, 2 to 5 minutes. Turn fillets, drizzle with remaining butter, and continue cooking until blackened and fish is easily flaked with a fork.
This is really good served on top of a crisp, cool Caesar salad.
