Put a healthy fish dinner on your table in 15 minutes! 3-Ingredient Blackened Salmon has so much flavor with so little work involved!
Salmon is my favorite fish when it comes to cooking up something easy and quick. It’s not only delicious but really good for you!
I make it many different ways but this way is my favorite when I want to please everyone at the table.
I love that this recipe requires only 3-Ingredients. I like to use a Cajun or barbecue seasoning on my blackened salmon.
There are many great brands in the grocery store or you could make your own homemade Cajun Blackened Season if you’d like too.
If you go with a store bought one, just make sure it has a low sugar content because a high sugar content could cause the fish to burn.
What pan should you use to make 3-Ingredient Blackened Salmon?
It’s a great tool to use to get really crispy salmon skin. If you don’t own a cast iron pan, it is okay to use another type of skillet also.
Before I owned my cast iron skillet, I would use a non-stick or stainless steel pan.
What side dishes go well with this salmon?
Salmon is such a versatile dish as there are so many sides or salad that can go with it.
3-Ingredient Blackened Salmon matches up with almost any time of salad, pasta or vegetable. So use your imagination for the side dishes as the main course is very basic.
I typically cook my salmon in one piece and cut it later but you could buy individual filets of salmon and cook it that way too. It will be less cooking time if it’s in smaller pieces. Either way, it’s very delicious!
