Blackened Salmon with Broccoli Rabe and Raisins

           salmon-broccoli-rabe Recipe

Though salmon is a fatty fish, it contains heart-helping omega-3 fatty acids. Cajun seasoning spices up this dish, and broccoli rabe is low in calories and rich in vitamin C. 

Calories: 378

    Prep: 8 minutes; Cook: 12 minutes.

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings (serving size: 6 ounces salmon plus 1/4 of the vegetable mixture)


  • (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets 
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning or blackened spice mix
  • bunch broccoli rabe (about 1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • shallots, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • lemon, cut into wedges


1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Coat both sides of each salmon fillet evenly with seasoning; cover and cook for 3–4 minutes per side or until opaque throughout and blackened.

2. Meanwhile, in another skillet, bring the broccoli rabe and 1/2 cup water to a simmer. Cover and cook, tossing occasionally, for 3–4 minutes or until tender; drain and transfer to a plate.

3. Wipe out the second skillet, and heat oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and salt, and cook for about 3 minutes or until softened. Mix in the raisins and broccoli rabe. Serve with the salmon and lemon wedges.
