Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning (Zataran's, available at Safeway)
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 4 pounds salmon fillets
  • 1 cup butter (1 stick, plus 2 tablespoons, divided)

Directions

  1. To make seasoning mix: Combine paprika, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, black pepper, mustard and tarragon.
  2. To make salmon: Remove skin from salmon fillets.
  3. Melt 1/2 cup of the butter. Coat fillets with butter, and then liberally coat with blackened seasoning mix. Let stand in refrigerator 1 hour.
  4. Heat large cast-iron skillet until center of skillet turns white. Place 1 tablespoon of butter in skillet, cover immediately with 2 fillets. Huge amounts of steam and smoke will rise, so do NOT do this in the house.
  5. Cook 1 to 3 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and remaining 2 fillets.
  6. Serve in true Cajun tradition with red beans and rice, a nice baguette and a good solid merlot.
