Blackened Salmon Caesar Salad

Since starting work, I have been having less time to cook and blog. It is going to be a great challenge, now more than ever, for me to try to keep on track with my cooking/eating habits! I made time this week to cook this recipe and I am so glad I did. SO good!! I love love love blackened salmon caesar salad. This is definitely one of my favs! A while back I made salmon burgers and had left a leftover filet so I just froze it and unthawed it to use for this dish. This is also a nice gluten free option for those who are intolerant or are trying to stay away from it!



1 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 teaspoon  Onion Powder
1 teaspoon Oregano
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Thyme
2 pounds Salmon
Romaine lettuce (chopped)
Lemon wedge
Caesar Dressing



Combine garlic salt, paprika, onion powder, oregano, black pepper, cayenne pepper and thyme.

Mix it together and rub mixture on both sides of fish.

Note: I leave the skin on one side to fry. Once it is seared, I peel the skin off and add the seasoning. Frying the fish with the fat allows you to cook with virtually no oil.

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.

Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray and add fish.

Cook 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Toss chopped Romaine lettuce in your favorite Caesar dressing and add fish on top.

Serve with lemon wedge.
