Recipe Description

Baked, BBQ’d or pan-fried, this Cajun salmon recipe puts a new spin on Louisiana cuisine.

Depending on your preference, this Cajun styled dish can be made extra spicy, or with a rich smoky flavour and a touch of heat at the end.

You can adjust the heat to your taste by increasing the cayenne in this one, but go slowly!

This also makes an amazing bite-sized appetizer if you pan-fry it very, very hot and serve it on the rare side. This is a great recipe for pink or chum salmon, but you can certainly use sockeye, King or coho, too.

Do try to find the ancho chili powder–it has a particularly good smoky flavour that makes this dish distinctive.

Did you know that a recent study found that wild salmon contained as much as three times more Vitamin A and eight times more Vitamin D than farmed salmon? Click here to lean more!
