WHAT IS BLACKENED SALMON?
This dish is called darkened in light of the fact that it’s burned in a cast iron skillet to make a dull brilliant brown, or “dark” hull on the fish. Darkened food is frequently served in Cajun cooking, and can be made with a wide range of sorts of protein including fish, chicken, pork and shrimp.
HOW DO YOU MAKE BLACKENED SALMON?
Start by making your darkening flavoring. Coat salmon filets with dissolved margarine, then, at that point, sprinkle the flavoring all around the highest point of the fish. Singe the fish with the tissue side down (skin side up), until a dim outside layer structures. Flip the salmon over, then, at that point, cook until the fish is prepared. Add a sprinkle of parsley, then, at that point, embellish with lemon and serve.
