Blackened Salmon and Rice June 1, 2015

I love a good blackened salmon and am always trying new blackening season mixes. I came across this recipe and I loved how it was paired with a rice/corn mixture. Super tasty and simple to make.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rice
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets, skinned
  • 11-ounce corn
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Directions:

Heat oven to 400° F. Cook the rice according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, combine the paprika, cayenne, thyme, garlic powder, and ½ teaspoon of the salt.

In a saucepan, over medium heat, melt 2 ½ tablespoons of the butter. Add the lemon juice.

Working with 1 salmon fillet at a time, dip the top and bottom halves first in the lemon butter, then in the spices.

Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the salmon until blackened, 2 minutes per side. Transfer to the oven for 8 minutes.

Stir the corn, parsley, and remaining salt and butter into the rice. Transfer the salmon and rice to individual plates and serve with the lemon wedges.
