Blackened Salmon is one of those ideal weeknight recipes that delivers on 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.
It starts with the rub. Blackened Salmon seasoning requires sweet, savory, and spice. Our Pit Boss Sweet Rib Rub mixed with cayenne pepper covers all those notes resulting in a delicious crust.
After applying the rub, simply grill on high heat for 5 minutes on each side. If you’re feeling like getting an extra char on your salmon, open the Flame Broiler Plate and cook on direct heat.
Note: It is recommended to use New England Apple Fruit Hardwood Pellets with this recipe.
Make sure your grill grates are seasoned well to avoid the fish from sticking.
