Blackened Salmon/Catfish & Dill Sauce
We had two pieces of Salmon and one catfish fillet, So I decided to cook em together! This was a pretty easy recipe overall. I made the dill sauce fist, so it could chill in the fridge while I prepared and cooked the fish. Tamera made the veggies and salad and it all came together nicely!

4 Fish fillets about 8 ounces each
2 teaspoons cumin

Instructions for Fish
In a shallow bowl, mix all the spices together
Rub Avocado oil over salmon and also on the bottom of the pan.
Then rub spices all over the fish.
Heat the skillet over medium heat.
Place salmon, flesh-side down, in the hot oil. Cook for 4-5 minutes, and then flip salmon with a spatula. Cook for about 5-6 more minutes, or until skin becomes crispy and fish flakes easily with a fork. You can also cover the skillet to help steam the fish more.
