Blackening Spice

Dinner last night was supposed to be a Caesar salad with blackened salmon. Too late we realized we didn’t have a few key ingredients. Instead of a Caesar I just made a regular salad with Balsamic and Oil.

Michael blackened the salmon with his special concoction.

Blackening Spice

Makes 1 Cup

4 tablespoons paprika

1 1/2 tablespoons salt

1 1/2 tablespoons onion powder

1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder

1 tablespoon white pepper

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 1/2 tablespoons cayenne pepper

2 tablespoons thyme

2 tablespoons oregano

It’s very spicy!! Be warned!

We used it a lot for different things. Sometimes Michael will pick up an Ahi Tuna steak and sear it with the blackening spice. We use it a lot on salmon.

I ended up putting my blackened salmon on my salad and it was a delicious combo!

For lunch today I made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on a Sandwich Thin. I’m pretty sick of ham and turkey sandwiches right now. I need to figure something else out asap!

QUESTION: Is there a food item you’re sick of eating lately?
