Cajun Salmon

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!

Cajun Salmon


  • 2 fresh wild salmon fillets
  • Cajun rub
  • Olive oil, melted butter, or ghee.


  1. Preheat the oven’s broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. Lightly coat the bottom of a large Pyrex baking dish with olive oil.
  3. After removing any remaining pin bones from the fillets, Lay the fillets skin side down in the bottom of the Pyrex baking dish.
  4. Gently brush the top of the fillets with either melted butter, ghee, or olive oil (this is where a Misto  comes in handy).
  5. Spoon the cajun rub over the fillets and season to taste.
  6. Broil in the oven for 6-8 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  7. Remove from oven  and cover with aluminum foil to prevent the fish from drying out until ready to serve.


  1. 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.
  2. The cajun salmon in the photo was made with onion flakes as a fallback to running out of onion powder.
