Blackened Salmon and Other Goodies

We liked the blackened salmon so well last weekend that we decided to try again today.

Here is a picture of the salmon that has been prepped to go in the CI skillet. It has a heavy coat of blackening seasoning and then I smear a heavy coat of butter on one side. I do not want to add the butter or oil directly to the pan, because it is another step working over a VERY HOT grill (650-700).

I could not get the camera to work outside, so I did not get a picture of the skillet, but here is the finished salmon.

I went to the farmers market today and got some fresh tomatoes, basil, and these things, called garlic scapes. I had never seen them before, but they are basically the garlic tops that are removed to put more of the growth into the bulb. I chopped them and added to some fresh sweet corn.

I started some shallots, with butter and then added the scapes and corn. When it was nearly done, I added one of the roasted red peppers.

I added a caprese salad.

This turned out to be a fine meal.

    Looks amazing. You can also make pesto with the scapes.

    I had never seen the scapes before. I thought they were okay, but did not add enough for me to really be excited. I thought they were a bit strong when eaten raw.

    I've never had blackened salmon before, but am definately going to try it after seeing your post. Great job.

    The Blackened Salmon looks great. I do believe it's easier and more efficient to have the butter on the fish before droppig it on the cast iron top. Thanks for the inspiration.

    BobS - I had never thought of blackening salmon till somebody did it last week (was that you, too?) I gotta admit, it looks really good and may be on my list of things to try this week.

    I am not sure if you saw my cook but I did have another blackened salmon post a week ago.
