Bathing suit season is upon us (okay well, let's be honest...it's felt like bathing suit season for months now), so bring on the healthy recipes! Blackened salmon is a cinch to make and the spice mixture adds so much flavor to any type of fish. With a meal that can be prepped and on the table in under 20 minutes, it's no wonder this is making it onto our bi-weekly rotation. Top it with a dollop of refreshing guacamole or a side of sautéed vegetables, and you've got yourself a meal. Enjoy!
