Our neighbour gave us a few frozen filets of salmon from his recent fishing trip. so I decided to go onto pinterest and find a new way to prepare it instead of my usual lemon/butter/thai chili flakes.
And I came across a recipe for blackened salmon, and thought perfect! G and I both usually love that type of spice, so I thought it was gonna be a win for sure.
The actual seasoning isn't hard to make at all, just combine all of these spices:
2 teaspoons Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1 teaspoon Oregano
1 teaspoon Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Thyme
Then you rub it on the salmon. Again, pretty easy.
I even pulled out my cast iron pan.
G said it tasted old. And I had to agree, it just wasn't worth using the salmon for. I have a sneaking suspicion that it is because of my paprika, as its a sweet/"old" type version..
