Blackened Salmon with Spinach
This is one of those meals I love to make! You know... the kind of meal that looks & tastes really impressive, but is in fact super easy with minimal time commitment. :)
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
2 (6-ounce) portions of salmon, skinless and boneless
In a small bowl combine blackened rub ingredients:
1 T Italian seasoning
2 tsp. cracked black pepper
2 T paprika
1 T sea salt (a moderately allowed paleo ingredient)
1 T cayenne pepper
Season each piece of fish with rub.
Heat 1 T olive oil in a large skillet (I love my cast-iron pan for this) over medium heat. Add seasoned salmon and cook for about 2 minutes on each side.
Transfer the whole pan to the oven and cook for another 4-6 minutes.
I served this with sauteed spinach, sliced tomatoes and avocado, and a wedge of lemon! This has a bit of a kick... so, I hope you like hot! Enjoy....
It was a filling dinner, too. I only ate 1/2 the salmon and saved the other half for salad the next day! This was a 3 block Paleo dinner, and full of omega 3's.

How are you doing?? This is when things can get tough. Old habits want to creep back in. Just keep at it! Keep in mind the long term health benefits, the better performance, a leaner body, more PR's, not to mention, the prize money!!! :) Come to the meeting and get a good dose of motivation!
