    Blackened Salmon Fillets

    2 tablespoons ground paprika
    1 tablespoon ground cayenne pepper
    1 tablespoon onion powder
    2 teaspoons salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/4 teaspoon dried basil
    1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
    4 salmon fillets, skin and bones removed
    1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted


    In a small bowl, mix paprika, cayenne pepper, onion powder, salt, white pepper, black pepper, thyme, basil and oregano.

    Brush salmon fillets on both sides with 1/4 cup butter, and sprinkle evenly with the cayenne pepper mixture. Drizzle one side of each fillet with 1/2 remaining butter.

    In a large, heavy skillet over high heat, cook salmon, butter side down, until blackened, 2 to 5 minutes. Turn fillets, drizzle with remaining butter, and continue cooking until blackened and fish is easily flaked with a fork.
