Blackened Salmon With Fresh Peach Salsa

Grilled Blackened Salmon With Peach Salsa 

Spicy blackened salmon topped with sweet and spicy peach salsa come together for the quintessential summer meal!

Planning your meals around sales and seasonal ingredients is always a great way to save money and eat the freshest foods.

This week Safeway has peaches and salmon on sale. Pair the two and make a delicious blackened salmon on the grill and top with sweet and spicy peach salsa.  The combination of spices in salmon with the cool, sweet peaches is a perfect pairing.

Blackened Salmon is a classic Southern preparation that’s crispy on the outside, moist and flaky on the inside, and loaded with zesty Cajun flavor!

Blackened Seasoning Ingredients

  • cumin
  • paprika
  • cayenne pepper – this is spicy so you can sub chili powder if you don’t like heat
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 4-5 6 oz fillets salmon
  • olive oil

 

How to Make Blackened Salmon on the Grill

Heat the grill over medium-high heat

In a small bowl, combine the cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and garlic powder and stir to mix.

Brush the salmon on both sides with olive oil.

Generously sprinkle the blackened seasoning over the salmon.

Place the salmon on the hot grill flesh side down.  Cook for 5 – 6 minutes.

Flip and cook for another 5 minutes until the salmon is cooked through, but still glossy pink inside.

Top with fresh peach salsa and serve.

I served this over a bed of arugula with avocado, feta cheese, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.  It was fantastic!
