Blackened salmon steak with sautéed kale and peppers in a cast iron pan.

To prepare blackened salmon steak, the fish is generously coated with a mixture of spices. The seasoning blend imparts a vibrant reddish-brown hue to the salmon, giving it the characteristic “blackened” appearance. The fish is then seared in a hot skillet or grilled, which locks in the flavors and creates a crispy outer layer while keeping the interior moist and flaky.
The resulting blackened salmon steak boasts a symphony of flavors. The smoky aroma tease the senses while the spice blend delivers a pleasant kick. The richness of the salmon, combined with the slight tanginess from the spices, creates a harmonious flavor profile that is both hearty and satisfying.
