Cajun Seared Salmon

Cajun Seared Salmon

For those of you who read my Halibut post this is the second fish I cooked from Anderson Seafood’s.  They have a lot of top quality Salmon but the one I cooked was the Fresh Atlantic Salmon.  For the Salmon I cooked it exactly the same way as I did the Halibut but the only difference was that instead of just using salt, pepper and lemon juice I also used my own home made Cajun spice mix.  I won’t give you the exact mix but it has all of the typical Cajun flavors such as salt, garlic powder, paprika, black pepper, onion powder, cayenne pepper, dried thyme, dried oregano, etc…  Since I cooked the Halibut with no time to plan I just threw together some vegetables to stir fry.  For the Salmon I actually had time to make some rich (mix of brown and white rice) along with some butter sauteed vegetables.  I love cooking fish because you really can’t screw it up as long as you do not over cook it.  So if this is your first time I suggest just buying a larger piece of fish or even an extra piece of fish so you can use that as the test subject to ensure you do not screw up your dinner.  Also, just make sure you have a reliable source of fresh fish because the worst thing you could ever do is try to cook a non-fresh fish… if you do, then you will hate seafood for life!  If you have a fresh piece of fish and just don’t overcook it than you will enjoy it for sure.
