4 (6-8 ounce ea.) Salmon Fillets, preferably wild
3 TB. Avocado Oil or other neutral oil
2 – 3 TB. Sugar-Free Cajun Seasoning blend
2 TB. paprika
1 TB. garlic powder
1 TB. onion powder
1 TB. Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt
2 tsp. cracked black pepper
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried thyme
First mix the herbs together to make your seasoning blend.
Coat tops of fillets with seasoning. Pat into the flesh or place them flesh-side down into mixture. You want plenty of seasoning on each fillet.
Place Seasoned Fillets in a baking dish lined with parchment paper, skin side DOWN. Drizzle w. avocado oil. Bake at 400 degrees for 9-12 minutes (the thicker the fillets the longer).
Heat avocado oil in a heavy skillet (preferably iron) on medium-high for about 2 minutes. Carefully place fillets skin-side DOWN into hot oil. Cook approximately 3-4 minutes, flip, cook skin side UP 4-5 minutes (depending on thickness of fillets).
Remove from pan or oven and rest 5 minutes. Squeeze w. lemon or serve with lemon wedges.
Use extra Cajun Seasoning with fish, vegetables and meats. HINT: Use herbs and spices less than a year old for the best flavor.
