Blackened salmon fillets with spicy seasoning
  1. Drizzle a little olive oil over both sides of the salmon fillets and sprinkle one tablespoon of the blackened seasoning on each side, so the salmon is lightly coated all over

  2. Melt a knob of lightly salted butter over a medium heat in a large frying pan, before adding the salmon skin-down. Fry it for 2-3 minutes until crispy, then turn over and cook for another 2-3 minutes until the rest of the fillet is cooked

  3. Serve with a side of salad, slaw and potatoes, or a bit of whatever you fancy
