Blackened Salmon Fillets

Serves 4

2 T ground paprika
1 Tground cayenne pepper
1 T onion powder
2 t salt
1/2 t ground white pepper
1/2 t ground black pepper
1/4 t dried thyme
1/4 t dried basil
1/4 t dried oregano
4 salmon filets, skin and bones removed
1/2 C unsalted butter, melted

In a small bowl, mix paprika, cayenne pepper, onion powder, salt, white pepper, black pepper, thyme, basil and oregano.

Brush salmon filets on both sides with 1/4 cup butter, and sprinkle evenly with the cayenne pepper mixture.  Drizzle one side of each fillet with 1/2 remaining butter.

In a large, heavy skillet over high heat, cook salmon, butter side down, until blackened, 2 to 5 minutes.  Turn fillets, drizzle with remaining butter, and continue cooking until blackened and fish is easily flaked with a fork.
