Recipe | "Blackened Salmon with Avocado Cucumber Salsa"

image source
Cook's Notes: Salmon seasoned with a tasty cajun spice blend and pan fried until crispy served with a cool and creamy avocado cucumber salsa is an easy and healthy meal to prepare. For this recipe I shopped at Costco and their pieces were thinner than most other cuts of salmon and worked well for this pan fry recipe. The Avocado Cucumber Salsa can be made a few hours ahead. Recipe serves 2 and was adapted from

  • 2 pieces of wild salmon, not farmed
  • 1 TB. of olive oil
  • Cajun seasoning
Lime Avocado Cucumber Salsa
  • 2 avocados, pitted and mashed
  • 1 cup diced cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup diced grape tomatoes
  • 3 TB. diced red onion
  • 1 tsp. parsley flakes
  • 1 TB. fresh lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste


For the salmon

In a bowl place salmon and sprinkle both sides with cajun seasoning. How much depends on your personal preference.

Heat oil in a heavy bottom skillet over a medium high heat. Fry 3-4 minutes per side. Cook until deeply golden to slightly blackened. Squeeze lime juice over salmon and serve immediately.

For the Avocado Cucumber Salsa

Mix everything and enjoy on the salmon.
