what you need
  • 2 Tbsp. ground paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 4 salmon filets, boneless (skin removed)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (or margarine), melted
make it
In a small bowl, mix paprika, cayenne pepper, onion powder, salt, white and black pepper, thyme, basil and oregano.

Brush salmon filets on both sides with 1/4 cup butter or margarine. Sprinkle sides evenly with the cayenne pepper mixture. Drizzle one side of the filet with 1/2 of the remaining butter.

In a large, heavy skillet, over high heat, cook salmon, butter side down, until blackened, about 2 to 5 minutes. Turn filets, drizzle with remaining butter and continue cooking until blackened and fish is easily flaked with a fork.
May substitute butter or margarine for olive oil.

This dish is great with couscous or whole-grain rice.
