"grilled" Salmon

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by BeachGirl

I use this delicious fat-free method of cooking salmon, chicken and pork chops at least 2-3 times a week, varying the meats and seasonings.

This was awesome and so easy. Had my 7 year old put the blackening seasoning on for me and did exactly like the recipe stated. No mess, quick and easy and delicious-by 3 boys asked for seconds. Will definitely make this again and will try with chicken also. Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Just spray cast iron skillet with cooking spray and turn burner on HIGH.
  2. Rub seasonings on both sides salmon.
  3. When pan is smoking hot, add salmon; cook for about 2-3 minutes; turn and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. Turn again if needed to prevent meat from burning.
  5. Turn electric burner OFF.
  6. Immediately cover skillet and leave it on the hot burner another 4-5 minutes or until meat is done.
  7. DO NOT OVERCOOK, as the meat will dry out.
  8. It will look as if it were cooked on the grill, nice and brown (almost crusty) on the outside and juicy on the inside.
  9. I also use this same method to cook boneless, skinless chicken breasts and boneless pork loin chops and vary the seasonings to complement the meat.
  10. With just a tiny bit of practice, you'll know exactly how long to let the skillet sit on the burner after you have turned it off-- so you get the meat done and it's still very juicy.
