Blackened Salmon With Pineapple Mango Salsa

Dear Universe,

You’re quite a prankster, eh? First you send me three years of dreams in which I have to go back to high school EVEN THOUGH I have graduated college. Yes, it was quite a clever way to point out I’d missed an important lesson somewhere along life’s way. And following up with a graduation dream finale? Brilliant.

But this? Now I’m a waitress at the Pappadeaux I worked at in college?!?!? Not exactly the career path I had envisioned for my nighttime alter ego. I mean, can’t I fly or breathe underwater or something???

How is the ability to make succulent, flakey fillets of blackened salmon topped with zesty pineapple salsa a SUPERPOWER?  Seriously, if I spend the next three years craving spicy cilantro-lime shrimp, creamy seafood bisque and copycat Whole Foods salmon dip  I hold you responsible. Consider yourself warned.

    I hope you love the blackening seasoning as much as we do, Elizabeth Neblett Schneiderman! My version has a little less heat for the kids sake, but it’s pretty yummy! I always make twice the amount called for and keep the rest in a spice jar to sprinkle on a whole roast chicken later :)
