We’re a family of salmon lovers. Even my oldest – the pickiest among us – will eat salmon whenever I make it.

Which means, of course, that I make it a lot.

This works well for me since it makes for an incredibly easy dinner, it’s healthy and versatile. I love it in pasta, although we’re trying to cut our carbs so I usually bake or broil salmon.

This Blackened Salmon with Roasted Tomatoes is one of my go-to salmon recipes. The salmon has so much flavor and the blackening seasoning is a nice contrast to the sweet, soft tomatoes.

HOW TO MAKE BLACKENED SALMON?

To make blackened salmon, you’ll need a good blackening seasoning. I make my own blackening seasoning but you can also pick up some pretty good ones online or at your local store. Then you’ll simply mix it with some melted butter and a little olive oil and slather it all over your salmon. The butter will help it stick well and helps flavor the salmon while it’s baking.

Once your salmon is ready, toss it in a pan with some cherry tomatoes and bake for about 15 minutes, depending on how thick your salmon is.

Salmon is such a great choice for a lunch or dinner. It’s a good source of protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. I love to poach a big fillet and then keep it in the fridge to add to my lunch salads throughout the week. If I have any left, I’ll make a quick salmon chowder. I stock up when it’s on sale and keep it in my freezer.

Did you know you can cook it directly from frozen, too? Increase the cooking time but otherwise, you’re good to go!
