Blackened Salmon

31 Mar

High Protein

I decided to make Blackened Salmon for us to eat for dinner tomorrow (cooking on a sunday for weeknight meals) – I’ve never used this combination of spices or these pretty thin wild salmon fillets before. Came out really good for my first try! Your turn!

Blackened Salmon

1 lb salmon fillets (amt. to your liking)
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp basil
1 tsp black pepper
Olive oil, for drizzling

Drizzle olive oil on a skillet on medium-high heat. Combine paprika, oregano, garlic powder, thyme, basil, and black pepper in a small bowl. Drizzle olive oil (about 1/2-1 tsp per each fillet) on the fish, then rub the spice mixture on the fish equally. Top with a little more olive oil to set the spices onto the fish. Place the fish upside down(spice side down) onto the skillet. Let cook and shift from side to side if need be. Serve with veggies or in salad and enjoy!

16 Apr

Want to wow your loved ones with this easy to make, full of flavor dish? Try this. I just got off of my strict eat-their-food-only diet recently and im trying to find new and healthy ways to make dinner delicious. I went to the grocery store and was inspired to make this fruity topping for the Mahi Mahi and it came out so good. 90 calories in 1 mahi mahi fillet! plus the fruit, win win.

Sauteed Mahi Mahi with Tropical Salsa

Mahi Mahi, amount to your liking (or other fish like snapper or tilapia)
Montreal Steak Seasoning or Salt and Pepper on the fish, just a sprinkle on each side

For the Tropical Salsa
Fresh pineapple, strawberies, and kiwi, diced
1/2 cup of grape tomatoes, sliced in halves
2 tbsp fresh cilantro
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Combine the fruit, tomatoes, cilantro, and balsamic vinegar for the salsa. Preheat a large saute pan on medium high heat for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle the Mahi Mahi  on each side with seasoning above. Spray the pan with cooking spray and place the mahi mahi on the pan to cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until the fish is opaque and separates easily. Serve with salsa over it and enjoy! You can also make a side like sweet potatoes or sliced red potatoes as a compliment.
