blackened salmon recipe how to blackened salmon fillet

Blackening or Blakened  is a cooking technique term to blakening or crusting a spice mixture in fish skin.  Blakening used in the preparation of fish and other foods. This is one of famous cajun cuisine.  The fish fillet dredged in a mixture of herbs and spices, usually some combination of thyme, oregano, chili pepper, peppercorns, salt, garlic powder and onion powder. After that the fish drizzled in a mixture of olive oil and melted butter then pan seared in a very hot cast-iron skillet to make a perfect crusted layer. Well, this blakened salmon taste more kick’in spice than my Cajun Style Grilled Tuna Steak. If you like cajun seasoning, i think you would like blackened salmon even more because it use chilli or cayenne powder instead just paprika powder.

The characteristic brown-black color of the crust results from a combination of browned milk solids from the butter and charred spices. This  recipe  can be applied to any types of fish and other protein sources, such as steak or chicken cutlets but i think salmon is the most used protein in blakening technique.


  • 2 @ 200 gr  salmon fillet, skin-on
  • 1 tsp chilli powder

  • 1/2 tsp thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano flakes

  1. I’ve never tried this at home, Dedy, fearing that I would ruin the fish. You make it seem so easy and the fish looks so good! I just may give it a try. Thanks!

  2. Wow does this sound good and look great! 200g is a very large serving size, we usually do around 100g, and Canada’s Food Guide recommends a protein serving be 75g! Now that’s crazy.

  3. Dedy, that photograph is absolutely amazing! You did a GREAT job!!

    I love a blackened salmon filet! Salmon is definitely my favorite fish, and all of the different popular ways to season it are great in my opinion!! Nice work with this recipe!

  4. Your food looks AMAZING. Thank you for visiting my blog site and yes, I agree, organic food is very pricey. I try to grow my own but you can’t grow everything! Keep up the wonderful work here. Makes me hungry!
