You can never go wrong with this blackened salmon with sauteed shrimp recipe by Camirra’s Kitchen – it’s the best! Everything is well-seasoned and perfectly cooked. Make sure to serve it with cauliflower mash for a complete meal.
Blackening seasoning (for 2 lbs of salmon):
Combine all blackening seasoning in a small bowl.
Generously season the salmon with the blackening seasoning on all sides. Rub it down to make sure it sticks to the salmon. On the skin side, sprinkle a little bit of salt.
Place the shrimp into a bowl then season with 2 teaspoons of blackening seasoning. Mix everything and then set it aside and let it marinate.
Place a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat then add oil. Once hot, add the salmon skin side down. Cook for about 6 minutes and make sure not to move it during that time. Flip then cook the other side for about 5 minutes. Next, cook the sides for about 2 minutes each. Transfer to a plate.
In the same pan, cook the shrimp for one minute on each side over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of butter and mix with the shrimp.
In a different clean pan, add 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 teaspoons of minced garlic. Saute for about 30 seconds. Next, add a little bit of white wine or chicken broth and let it cook for about 30 seconds. Pour 3/4 cup of heavy cream and add a pinch of blackening seasoning, 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese, and parsley. Mix everything until well combined.
Add the shrimp to the sauce. Mix until everything is well-coated.
Place the cauliflower into a bowl then add a cup of water. Put in the microwave for 15 minutes. Once cooked, place in the food processor and add the other ingredients. Blend until smooth.
Serve the salmon with sauteed shrimp and cauliflower mash. Enjoy!
