Blackened Grilled Salmon
1 filet Salmon or 2-4 tail or centre cuts
1 tbs smoked paprika
1 tsp cayenne (to taste)
1 tbs fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1 tbs fresh oregano, chopped
1 tsp sea salt (or kosher)
3-4 tbs canola oil or olive oil
2 lemons, zested and juiced
Mix spices and salt together in a small bowl. Place mixture on a plate and coat the salmon portions, flesh side only.
Prepare cedar planks for grill or heat cast iron skillet. Or try a grill sheet and add a bit of oil to the sheet.
Place salmon, flesh down, on the pan or grill sheet and cook for 2-3 minutes. Turn and cook until the skin becomes crispy. About 5 minutes.
Serve immediately with lemon zest and lemon juice.
