Living in the Pacific Northwest, we have easy access to fresh and healthy wild caught Pacific Salmon. This simple recipe is ready in less than 10 minutes!
- 2 fresh wild salmon fillets
- Cajun rub
- Olive oil, melted butter, or ghee.
- Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
- Lightly coat the bottom of a large Pyrex baking dish with olive oil.
- After removing any remaining pin bones from the fillets, Lay the fillets skin side down in the bottom of the Pyrex baking dish.
- Gently brush the top of the fillets with either melted butter, ghee, or olive oil (this is where a Misto comes in handy).
- Spoon the cajun rub over the fillets and season to taste.
- Broil in the oven for 6-8 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
- Remove from oven and cover with aluminum foil to prevent the fish from drying out until ready to serve.
- This fish stores well in the fridge and can be added to salads, eaten cold on a hot summer day, or easily reheated in a small aluminum foil covered dish in a toaster oven.
- The cajun salmon in the photo was made with onion flakes as a fallback to running out of onion powder.
