  • skillet



  • Heat the skillet with the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • The skillet needs to be hot before adding the salmon.
  • 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 for three to four minutes.
  • At this time I peel off the skin. If you love the skin, skip this part.
  • After peeling the skin off, add the blackening seasoning to the top side of the salmon you took the skin off.
  • Flip the salmon over and cook for two minutes.
  • If you like leaving the skin on, season it before placing it down in the skillet.
  • Cook each side three to four minutes.
  • The time you cook the salmon will vary depending on how thick it is and how pink you like it.
