Blackened Wild Alaskan Salmon
1 whole side of Wild Alaska Salmon , filleted
1 Cube of butter
Cajun or blackening seasoning
Black cast iron skillet
Skin the Wild Alaska Salmon fillet if not already done, and cut the fillet into 3� wide pieces. Melt the butter and spread onto the Salmon with a brush. Sprinkle the blackening seasoning on both sides of the Wild Alaska Salmon. If you want it very spicy, put enough on so you can�t see the flesh anymore. Cooking should be done outdoors on a grill unless you have very good ventilation. Preheat the skillet on high until it is white hot. Place the Wild Alaska Salmon in the skillet and cook on one side until the spices turn black. Gently flip the Wild Alaska Salmon over and repeat on the other side. Check to see if it is done by breaking a piece open. It should be just slightly raw in the middle. It will finish cooking by the time it is served.
