Blackened Salmon — Stoney’s Bread Company Imitation

If you have never been to Stoney’s, drop what you are eating or thinking of eating (if you’re like me it will inevitably be one of the two) and take a trip to the Oakville location. Their unique set up and amazing atmosphere has nothing on their blackened salmon sandwich. Salmon’s never my first pick at a restaurant, but ohhhh my.

So, as a tribute, here’s my imitation version.

Blackened Salmon – with spicy lime avocado cream and roasted red pepper & mango salsa

Roasted pepper salsa

Roasted red pepper & mango salsa

2 tomatoes, chopped
1 ripe mango, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
1/4 cucumber, chopped
1 orange pepper, roasted (see note at bottom)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp Red chilli peppers
1 tsp cilantro
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and set aside

 Spicy Lime Avocado cream (caution: you may be tempted to eat the entire bowl before serving)

Avocado cream and the finished salsa

3 avocados, chopped
1 cup plain yogurt
2 tbsp mayonaise
Juice of 1 lime
Large pinch Cayenne pepper
Few drops tabasco

Combine avocado, yogurt and mayo in a blender and pulse until smooth. Mix in lime juice, cayenne and tabasco .

Blackened Salmon

1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp oregano
Few tbsp oil for frying
4 large pieces of salmon

Coat the salmon thoroughly with the spice mixture

Combine all dry ingredients and mix completely. Sprinkle the rub onto a flat surface and dip the salmon to coat the fish. Heat the oil over medium heat and once hot add the salmon in a single layer. Cook the salmon for around 2 or 3 minutes and then use a spatula to turn over. Cook for another 3 or so minutes until the fish and spices have a nice blackened look, and VOILA!

Assemble the salmon with the salsa and avocado cream and garnish with a lemon slice
