Yet another recipe from my mother-in-law, who is probably the best cook that I personally know. This is, hands down, our favourite way to eat salmon in our house - and we eat a lot of it! The spice portion can be doubled and stored for later - I typically double or triple the recipe and store it in an airtight jar so that it is available whenever I want it.
- Mix together spices in an airtight jar and shake until well blended.
- Sprinkle cajun spice liberally over salmon fillets on both sides.
- Melt butter in a large pan over medium high heat until sizzling hot.
- Place salmon fillets in butter and cook each side 4-8 minutes, depending on the size of the fillet. Be sure to cook one whole side before flipping to blacken properly.
