    I hate to say it, but, not everyone likes their food pepper hot. I can eat it hot but it’s just not my preference. My kids feel the same way. On the other hand, my wife does like it with lots of Cayenne.
    With that in mind I set out to make Blackened Salmon that would satisfy everyone.
    Here’s what I did:
    I made the recipe as suggested but
    I substituted 1/2 tbsp chili powder for the cayenne and also used only the black pepper. This was sprinkled on everyone’s salmon.
    For my wife I sprinkled additional cayenne on her piece.
    Viola, everyone was happy.
    One other thing, I used our regular buttery spread (Earth Balance) instead of butter. It worked fine too.
    Enjoy,
    Chris

    Thank you for a delicious recipe. I placed the blackened salmon over salad greens which I tossed with a combination of 1/2 store-bought bleu cheese and 1/2 Italian viniagrette. Fabulous! My guests thought Julia was back! One word of caution — when placing the salmon into the hot pan, quite a bit of smoke was generated — open those windows and turn on the fan.

    I love this recipe. I cut back on the cayenne to make it friendly for my spice hating kids, but its a huge hit. Great on catfish, and try it with shrimp and scallops! I made a large batch of the spice blend up in a large shaker so I always have on hand since I use it quite often.

    Squeeze some lemon on it before serving and its amazing
