CAJUN SPICED SALMON FILLET Serves: 2 Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 8-10 minutes Cajun Seasoning Mix: In a bowl or container, blend ½ teaspoon sea salt ½ teaspoon dried thyme ½ teaspoon dried oregano ½ teaspoon smoked paprika ½ teaspoon fennel seeds ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper Ingredients: (2) 6 ounce wild salmon filets, about ½” thick (2) tbl. Barbàra Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 lemon, thinly sliced crosswise Cajun Seasoning Mix Directions: 1) Place salmon fillets, skin side down, on a foil lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. 2) Sprinkle Cajun Seasoning equally over both fillets and rub into the fish. *You may have a little seasoning left over. 3) Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the salmon filets (skin side down/seasoned side up), and cook for approximately 5 minutes until the bottom of the salmon is cooked and you can easily separate the skin from the fish with a spatula. Discard skins. 4) Return the partially cooked salmon to the foil lined baking sheet, seasoned side up. Top with 2-3 thin slices of lemon. 5) Broil salmon in a pre-heated oven (upper rack; leave oven cracked open) for an additional 4-5 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and fish is just cooked through. *Do not overcook! 6) Serve with a side of broccoli florets steamed over boiling water for approximately 2-3 minutes until crisp tender. Toss with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice to taste.
