DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, mix paprika, cayenne pepper, onion powder, salt, white pepper, black pepper, thyme, basil and oregano.
  • Brush salmon fillets EVOO until moist, and sprinkle evenly with the cayenne pepper mixture. Mist with EVOO spray (I use Garlic flavored EVOO spray).
  • In a large, heavy skillet over high heat, cook salmon, until blackened, 2 to 5 minutes. Turn fillets, brush with remaining EVOO , and continue cooking until blackened and fish is easily flaked with a fork.
  • At this point, I bake at 400 for 10 minutes or until desired doneness (I like mine well done). If you don't like yours well done, skip the baking stage.
