NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 pound fresh salmon fillet, skinless, cut into 2 pieces (not too thick or cooking time will increase)
  • Blackening Spice, recipe follows
  • 1 (12-ounce) can "soy" black beans, drained (available at health food and specialty stores)
  • 4 cups fresh spinach, cleaned
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Sour cream, for garnish
  • Blackening Spice:
  • 5 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 5 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dry thyme
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
Directions
  • Heat oil in a large heavy saute pan or iron skillet over high heat until almost smoking hot.

  • Coat the salmon fillets well on both sides with the blackening spice and place gently in the hot pan. Sear on the first side for about 2 minutes and then flip fish over. Add the black beans to 1 corner of the pan and throw in the fresh spinach and butter right on top of everything and cook it all for about 2 minutes more.

  • To serve, take the spinach off the top and place it on the bottom of a plate. Then arrange the salmon and black beans around it. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream, if desired.

Blackening Spice:
  • Mix all the blackening spice ingredients well and store in a sealed container or spice canister. Keep extra as a versatile spice in your kitchen.
