Took out a plate and laid on the blackening spices, including paprika, salt, cayenne, thyme, onion powder, garlic powder, and oregano. Covered the plate thick with spices. Then I heated up my 12-inch fry pan. When it was nice and hot, I took the salmon, pressed both sides into the spices to get them nice and coated, then I placed them in the pan. Next I drizzled olive oil on the top and sides of the fish. After 1 1/2 minutes I flipped the salmon. 2 minutes later I transfered them to a baking pan covered with nonstick foil. Placed the salmon in a 400 degree oven and baked for 10 minutes (but these were thick steaks, so if yours are thinner, cook for 7 minutes and then test for doneness).
Serve them on a plate and lightly cover with parsley.
