  • 12 ounces wild caught sockeye salmon fillets 4 pieces
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or coconut oil, divided

Blackened Spices

  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • kosher or sea salt to taste


  • Combine spices in a small bowl.
  • Brush each side of salmon with 1/2 tablespoon oil. Evenly distribute seasoning on both sides of salmon. Add remaining oil to a large skillet, heat to medium-high heat and add salmon. Reduce heat to medium and cook salmon 5-6 minutes on each side. The outside should be crispy and the salmon should easily flake with a fork.
