Recipe

Salmon is one of my go-to recipes for busy nights since it cooks in under 10 minutes and takes almost no prep. There are so many different ways to prepare it but the one I make most often is this simple Blackened Salmon. The spice mixture is a combination of smoked paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and chili powder to taste. For a mildly spicy salmon just use a touch of chili powder and if you like things spicy, bump it up or consider using cayenne or ancho chili powder which are both spicier. This spice rub also works great on chicken, pork, shrimp, and vegetables.
