Blackened Salmon Rub

Blackened Salmon Rub

The blackening technique is cooking that involves brushing melted butter onto fish or meat, then dredging it through a spicy dry rub of seasonings. The cooking process takes place very quickly, because it's done at a high temperature. Essentially, you are searing the spices onto the food.

Food that is blackened isn't burnt; it's simply coated in a special spice blend that takes on a very dark brown, almost black color when cooked in a skillet, on a grill or in an oven.
