Blackend Anything is Delicious

So many of us are on diets or watching our weight. We often cater ladies luncheons and they request an elaborate salad with some sort of grilled chicken on top. BORING!! and sometimes tasteless and dry. Blackening is a great alternative to grilled anything. You simply cover one side completely with the seasoning and then sear on a flaming hot skillet. This causes the chicken or fish to cook quickly while locking juices inside.

1 heaping tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons salt
1 heaping teaspoon garlic powder
1 heaping teaspoon onion powder
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons black pepper
1/2 teaspoon leaf thyme
1/2 teaspoon leaf oregano


Mix all ingredients, shake, and season
