Delicious Summer Salad

I love a delicious summer salad full of salad greens and all my favorite ingredients.  I have made this salad often with blackened chicken, but this time I decided to top it with blackened Salmon.  This Blackened Salmon is my favorite way to eat Salmon. It makes a delicious salmon salad.  The Salmon is so full of flavor from Paul Prudhomme’s Blackening Seasoning and Salmon seasoning.  

Walmart Carries the Blackening Seasoning

I can find these seasonings at my local Walmart.  Hopefully, you will be able to find them too.  I wish you could taste this Salmon.  It is spicy but not hot and tender and flaky with a little crispiness on top.  It is perfect on top of this salad.

Salmon is loaded with Omega 3 fish oil.  I knew Salmon is good for your brain but had no idea of the other benefits.  It is not only good for your brain, but your heart, hair, skin, cholesterol, and so much more.  Salmon is a fantastic source of Omega-3.

How easy is it to prepare this Blackened Salmon?

I use Paul Prudhomme’s blackening seasoning, his salmon seasoning and a hot skillet with a little olive oil and butter.  A lot of people cook their Salmon on low, but for this recipe, the skillet needs to be hot.  It will sear the blackening seasonings.  Place the skin side down into the hot skillet for about two to three minutes.  After seasoning the top of the Salmon, flip it over and cook three to four minutes.  The skin side will be the top side at this point. 

Take The Skin Off The Salmon If You Prefer

Now,  I peel the skin off the Salmon.  After peeling the skin off the Salmon, add the blackening seasoning to the side of the Salmon you took the skin off.  Flip the salmon over and cook for two minutes.  It truly takes less than ten minutes to prepare this blackened Salmon.

The Salmon skin is exceptionally healthy.  Leave the skin on if you prefer. 

Build your Blackened Salmon Salad

While the Salmon is cooking layer your salad greens, walnuts, sunflower seeds, sliced egg, Parmesan cheese, cranberries, and tomatoes, after the Salmon is done, you simply add it to the top to make this salmon salad.
