Blackened Salmon

Salmon is one of the best types of fish you can eat. The protein from salmon is easily digestible so is absorbed and utilised well by our bodies. It is rich in omega fatty acids which are vital for everything from cardio vascular health, eye health, metabolism, brain and nerve efficiency, muscle, tissue and nerve health.

This spice mix is a great way to jazz up your salmon fillets. You can also use it for chicken or beef if you like. It’s a great idea to make a double or triple batch of the spice mix and store it in a ziplock bag in the fridge for the times you need it. Mum and Dad often make this when we have dinner at their place and it is always a huge hit so I thought I’d share it with you. It is super healthy, super tasty and, well, just plain super. Great for BBQ’s accompanied by a nice big green salad and a delicious Quinoa Salad

Spice Mix
1 tbs sweet paprika
1 tsp ground oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp ground white pepper
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper (add a couple of pinches if you like it hot)
Pinch of Himalayan pink crystal salt

2 salmon fillets
1 tbs macadamia oil (or oil of your choice)
3 cloves crushed garlic

In a deep dish large enough to fit both of the salmon fillets, mix oil together along with the crushed garlic. Add salmon fillets to the dish and make sure they are coated with the mixture. Cover and let marinate in the fridge for at least 1/2 hr, if you can leave them longer, that is even better. On a plate, pour spice mix. Remove salmon from oil and garlic mix and coat in spice mix on both sides.

Heat your frypan, add any leftover garlic oil mix, once this is hot, add your salmon fillets and cook to your liking.
