Looking to try something different before you watch the Pit Boss 250 this weekend? This Blackened Salmon recipe was hand-selected by Pit Boss® ambassador A.J. Allmendinger because of its simplicity as well as the health benefits. A very healthy way to cook on your pellet grill, this salmon is loaded with minerals and nutrients such as Omega 3 Fatty Acids which are essential for heart health. In order to stay in racing shape, Allmendinger places a lot of importance on healthy habits. This recipe will have you racing laps around the competition in no time.
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.
