Not to mention we are trying to limit our holiday calorie intake by eating health(ier) when we are alone.
Our favorite way (so far) to eat salmon is blackened. It's not terrible for you and it's really pretty simple!
You will need:
2 tablespoons ground paprika
1 tablespoon ground cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
4-8 salmon fillets, skin and bones removed
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
Mix all seasonings together.
Coat filets with butter, sprinkle seasonings on both sides, and toss onto a preheated grill.(We use one of those handy holey grilling pans so the fish doesn't fall through.)
Grill till the fish is cooked through and flaky.
Serve with tartar sauce (the fish has a bit of a kick!!)!
