The only blackened food I've ever had has been from the Border Cafe, and I really like it. REALLY like it. Adding to its appeal, it's got a lot of flavor without a lot of calories AND it's incredibly quick to make.
I found a recipe for Blackened Salmon (in Cooking Light, I think) and had to give it a try. (Attempts at blackened chicken are right around the corner!) There are so many different blackening blends. I decided to go with the one in the recipe, which was...OK. My friend, Kristie, gave me a premixed blend for Christmas, which I'll try next time. Along with some broccoli slaw, this was a really nice dinner.
