Directions:

In a large saucepan, add your coconut oil and set to med/high heat. Mix all of your spices together in a bowl, and then add your salmon fillets onto the sauce pan. Top your salmon with a little bit of coconut oil spray and rub it with your spices. Let this cook on high heat for about 3-5 minutes or until “blackened”.
