Ingredients

For the Seasoning Mixture:

  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper optional, for spice
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder

For the Salmon:

  • 4 6oz salmon filets
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 lemon, sliced into wedges

Instructions

For the Seasoning Mixture:

  • In a small bowl, combine all of the seasoning mixture ingredients and stir until well combined.

For the Salmon:

  • Using your hands, evenly divide the seasoning mixture among the salmon filets and gently rub into the tops of each filet.
  • Heat avocado oil in a non stick skillet over medium high heat. When the oil is hot, but not smoking, place the salmon into the pan, flesh side down, until a deep blackened crust forms, about 3 minutes. Then, using a sturdy spatula flip the filets to the skin side and continue cooking until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily, about 2-3 more minutes.
  • Serve alongside my Whole30 Tartar Sauce and sliced lemon.
