Blackened Salmon is an easy recipe that is flavor packed. This Cajun fish recipe is gluten free and keto-friendly.
Pat dry salmon filet/s. Fill bottom of a cast iron skillet with oil (enough to cover bottom about 1/16th inch deep). Place over high heat.
Cover the top and sides of the salmon with Cajun seasoning. Gently pat to help the spices stick well.
Place the salmon filet flesh side down into the hot oil. Sear for 90 seconds to 2 and 1/2 minutes until the spices start to blacken.
Flip skin side down. Reduce heat to medium and cook 2-6 minutes. Time will vary widely based on thickness of fish and if you prefer more rare or well done.
Serve with lemon or a mayonnaise based sauce, such a Yum Yum sauce.
Nutrition estimate based on 2/3 tbsp of the Cajun seasoning and 1 tsp oil remaining on the salmon, this is then divided among the two servings.
