Easy Homemade Blackened Salmon

Salmon is my absolute favorite fish to prepare. It’s pretty hard to mess up, and it’s buttery, flakey, and very mild. It makes the perfect canvas for any meal. For this fish sandwich recipe, I rubbed the salmon with a spicy homemade blackening seasoning and served it with a smoky grilled corn salsa.

Blackened salmon, a warm crusty roll, and fresh summer veggies make for the perfect summer meal!

How To Make Homemade Blackened Seasoning

You can buy blackening seasoning off the shelf, but it’s also super easy to make it yourself with a few pantry staple ingredients! Just combine paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cayenne, dried thyme, dried basil and oregano in a small bowl. That’s it! Store in an airtight container in your pantry for up to 3 months.

The Best Grilled Corn Salsa

If you haven’t tried grilling your corn yet, you are missing out. It gives the sweet corn a hint of smokiness. I husk the corn and place it straight on the grill. It only takes a couple of minutes on each side. I toss the grilled corn kernels with cherry tomatoes, cilantro and lime juice. This corn salsa is addicting, Make extra to serve as a dip with chips or toss it on top of salads.

To make the grilled corn salsa, first brush your ears of corn with olive oil and place on a hot grill. Cook until they’re charred on all sides, but not burnt (about 5-8 minutes). Remove from the grill, and allow them to cool completely. Once cooled, cut the corn off the cobb. and toss in a bowl with tomatoes, red onion, lime juice, and cilantro. Set aside until time to serve.
