Blackening fish in a frying pan is a particularly Cajun way of cooking. Make sure your kitchen is well ventilated, though, or do it outdoors!


Serves: 4 

  • 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 salmon fillets, skin and bones removed
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. In a small bowl, mix paprika, cayenne pepper, onion powder, salt, white pepper, black pepper, thyme, basil and oregano.
  2. Brush salmon fillets on both sides with 65g butter and sprinkle evenly with the cayenne pepper mixture. Drizzle one side of each fillet with 1/2 remaining butter.
  3. In a large, heavy frypan over high heat, cook salmon, butter side down, until blackened, 2 to 5 minutes. Turn fillets, drizzle with remaining butter and continue cooking until blackened and fish is easily flaked with a fork.
