My Blackened Salmon with a Gorgonzola Cream Sauce is a Restaurant Style Dish with a symphony of flavors that can be made in your home kitchen in under 30 minutes.
How to make Restaurant Style Blackened Salmon just like a chef in your very own kitchen.
Northwest Coho Salmon has made a salmon lover out of me and that’s saying a lot!
I hate to admit that I never really enjoyed the taste of salmon until I tried Coho. And my lightly blackened salmon recipe with a gorgonzola cream sauce is the first of many salmon recipes to come.
Who knew I would end up loving salmon after all these years of avoiding it! In fact, my Mediterranean Salmon and Salmon stuffed with crabmeat are two other delicious ways to serve this tasty fish in your home for dinner.
One of my missions has been to share my Restaurant Style of cooking with my friends and help turn any night into a special occasion with one of my Restaurant Style dishes.
And I promise it will be our little secret just how easy it is to cook like a chef in your own home.
Next time you think of entertaining my lightly blackened salmon would be the perfect dish to serve your guests. You can easily prep and precook it hours before anyone arrives and finish it off in the oven minutes before you’re ready to serve dinner.
Whether it’s dinner for the family or a dinner party for 20, easy and Delicious is always a winning combination.
Blackened Salmon with a Gorgonzola Cream Sauce
- 2 6 ounce coho salmon fillets or your favorite salmon or other fish
- 2 tablespoons blackening seasoning I used cajun magic
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 ounces heavy cream
- 1 ounce gorgonzola crumbles ( you may use more crumbles if you like a more intense flavor or sub bleu cheese crumbles)
- 1 teaspoon chopped Italian parsley for garnish or other leafy green
- gorgonzola crumbles to garnish optional
- remove skin from salmon fillets
- pat dry salmon and liberally sprinkle blackening seasonings on top of each fillet. Press down gently on seasonings so they don't fall off
- heat skillet
- when skillet is hot carefully add olive oil and salmon, seasoning side down. Do not touch the salmon for 2 minutes (make sure to have the fan on)
- after two minutes check the salmon by gently turning it over to see if you have enough color on the fish
- saute the other side for 2 minutes then place salmon in a shallow baking dish with a little water in the bottom of the dish.
- bake salmon for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees
- place cream in a small sauce pan and heat to a light boil, reduce heat to simmer
- add gorgonzola crumbles to sauce allowing them to melt into the cream
- if sauce appears to thick add a few drops of water or additional cream
- When Salmon is done spoon sauce over the middle of the fish and garnish with parsley and gorgonzola crumbles
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
