Blackened Salmon

Living room sofa; partly cloudy, 45 F, 0609

I enjoy eating well. As mentioned previously, I went through a period when I was craving salmon. I tried cooking it many ways; broiled, grilled, etc. I found this simple easy to bake blackened salmon recipe to be the best.

One pound salmon filet

The following is required:

  • 1 lb filet salmon
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • pinch ground red pepper or to taste

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the filet salmon skin down on aluminum foil lined baking pan. Mix the remaining ingredients together and sprinkle on the salmon filet. Place on middle rack of oven and bake for 16-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon.

Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice and garnish with parsley.

Some people like to wax on about how good salmon is or how healthy it is for you. If you are here, you likely already know these things. You can research the health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids by starting with the Wikipedia article: Omega-3 fatty acid. As noted in that article, it is better to eat natural sources of Omega-3s than to take supplements.
