Blackened Salmon is one of those ideal weeknight recipes that delivers bold flavors and textures while keeping prep and cooking time to a minimum. It’s also a very healthy way to cook on your pellet grill as salmon is loaded with minerals and nutrients such as Omega 3 Fatty Acids, which are essential for heart health.
Louisiana Grills Kitchen
Wood Pellet Recommendation
1 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper (optional)
4 Tablespoons Louisiana Grills Sweet Heat Rub
2 Pound Salmon, fillet, scaled and deboned
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Start up your Louisiana Grills® grill. Once it’s fired up, set the temperature to 350°F.
- Remove the skin from the salmon and discard. Brush the salmon on both sides with olive oil, then rub the salmon fillet with the minced garlic, cayenne pepper and Sweet Rib Rub.
- Grill the salmon for 5 minutes on one side. Flip the salmon and then grill for another 5 minutes, or until the salmon reaches an internal temperature of 145°F. Remove from the grill and serve.
If you’re feeling like getting an extra char on your salmon, open the Flame Broiler Plate and cook on direct heat.
Make sure your grill grates are seasoned well to avoid the fish from sticking.
