Blackened Salmon for 2

Does it seem like time flies fast? It does. Before you know it you will be old and gray. Don't you want to have the memories of the special times you have together? Romantic Tip: Purchase an inexpensive calendar reserved only for romance notes. Keep track of upcoming romantic dates and events; don't use it as your everyday calendar. Keep this calendar as a special keepsake when the year is done. On New Year's Eve, pull out the calendar and reminisce about the past year together, and plan on making new ones in the upcoming year. 

Now I have a wonderful easy recipe that will knock your partners socks off! 

Blackened Salmon for 2
adapted from This Mama Cooks

1 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/2 teaspoon Paprika 
1/2 teaspoon  Onion Powder 1/2 teaspoon Oregano 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Thyme
1 pound Salmon

Combine garlic salt, paprika, onion powder, oregano, black pepper, cayenne pepper and thyme. 
Mix it together and rub mixture on both sides of fish. 
Note: I leave the skin on one side to fry. Once it is seared, I peel the skin off and add the seasoning. Frying the fish with the fat allows you to cook with virtually no oil. I just don't serve mine with the skin on. 
Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray and add fish. 
Cook 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
