  • gorgonzola crumbles to garnish optional
Instructions
  1. remove skin from salmon fillets
  2. pat dry salmon and liberally sprinkle blackening seasonings on top of each fillet. Press down gently on seasonings so they don't fall off
  3. heat skillet
  4. 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)
  5. after two minutes check the salmon by gently turning it over to see if you have enough color on the fish
  6. 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.
  7. bake salmon for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees
Gorgonzola Cream
  1. place cream in a small sauce pan and heat to a light boil, reduce heat to simmer
  2. add gorgonzola crumbles to sauce allowing them to melt into the cream
  3. if sauce appears to thick add a few drops of water or additional cream
  4. When Salmon is done spoon sauce over the middle of the fish and garnish with parsley and gorgonzola crumbles
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!
