Blackened Pan Seared Salmon with Whole30 Tartar Sauce

Recently, I shared this Blackened Red Snapper recipe on the blog. With the leftover blackening seasoning + some of my leftover Whole30 Tartar Sauce, I put together this easy-peasy blackened salmon with tartar sauce on my instagram stories. Y’all loved it, so I felt it needed a proper place on the blog– so you never forget it 😉

So here it is in all it’s glory! An easy blackened pan-seared salmon served with a tangy, dill-y tartar sauce that will make your Whole30 weeknight cooking taste like heaven! But honestly, just the blackened salmon alone is delicious!

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.
