jerk lemon pepper salmon

Ingredients:

  • 1 or 2 pieces of salmon (about 1 1⁄2 lbs)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil or canola oil
  • Lemon slices
  • Roasted vegetables (refer to the “vegetables” section)
  • 2 tablespoons Jerk Seasonings (combination)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Lemon pepper seasoning:
    • 1 tablespoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
    • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Preparation:

  1. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add peanut oil or canola oil.
  2. Rinse the salmon and pat it dry. Lightly spray with oil. Season all sides with Jerk and Lemon Pepper seasoning.
  3. Once the pan is hot and the butter starts to brown slightly and smoke, gently add the salmon and cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly charred on each side.
  4. Transfer the salmon and lemon slices to a greased oven-safe dish. Broil on a high central shelf for 8-10 minutes, or until cooked through. Sprinkle with lemon juice immediately after removing from the oven.
  5. Serve with roasted vegetables.

Number of servings: 2-4 Preparation time: 15 minutes

Personal Remarks: PRO tip: This method is known as pan-searing. Ensure that the butter starts to brown before adding the salmon. This will give the salmon a nicely charred, spiced exterior.

Enjoy!
