"Spice up your next healthy seafood dinner with this easy 5-Minute, 5-Ingredient Blackened Salmon! It’s a classic Southern favorite that’s crispy on the outside, moist and buttery on the inside, and loaded with zesty Cajun flavor! If you love spicy food, then this is the dish for you. It’s definitely spicy, but you can completely control the level of heat by adjusting the amount of cayenne that you use. In fact, when I’m preparing this Blackened Salmon for the family, I just omit the seasoning altogether. This is one of those great meals that can easily be accommodated for everyone around the table without having to make an entirely different meal. So go ahead — skip the boring salmon and take a trip down south. You’ll never look at this healthy fish the same way again! With some coleslaw, grits, or cornbread on the side, my easy 5-Minute, 5-Ingredient Blackened Salmon will instantly transport you to New Orleans!"

NotesCooking Just for Two? You can cut the ingredients in half and just cook 2 salmon fillets. The cooking process remains the same. If you prepare a full recipe of seasoning, just save the extra spice for another meal.

This dish is also gluten-free, low-carb, and high in protein.

In our home we love all seafood and, with summer arriving fast here in South Africa, we are looking for lighter summer meals like this deliciously spicy blackened salmon. I have never used cumin on fish before so that was a lovely new experience and the rest of the spices all hit the tastebuds exactly right. It is GOOOOOD and with a lovely crunchy fresh spring garden salad it was just perfect.
