The Best Cajun Blackened Salmon Ever.

Total Time

We eat a lot of salmon (at least once a week) and this is by far my favorite way of preparing it. It's really quite simple, and the end result is so delicious. The sweetness of the apple juice/white wine combined with the spiciness of the Cajun seasoning is amazing. The blackened texture of the fish is also great. Not your typical boring salmon!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb salmon fillet
  • cajun's choice blackening seasoning (or any Cajun blackened seasoning)
  • 12 cup apple juice or 12 cup a sweet white wine
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 lemon


  1. Melt butter over medium high heat. Stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons (depending on how spicy you like it) of Cajun's Choice Blackened Seasoning and garlic. Stir constantly for 1 minute to blend flavors. Slow the cooking of the butter and the garlic by adding wine. Stir constantly and cook for 1 minute. Add fish fillets and cook until fish flakes apart. Squeeze lemon over fish and serve.

Easy and everyone should know how to cook a tasty meal, but I have some advice of my own. Let's see what else...everyone needs to know how bone a chicken, read a measuring cup, work the dishwasher, make a grocery list, check in at a Holiday Inn Express... I think I've said enough.

Guest worthy recipe! I added some Chili garlic paste as the Cajan spice I had was not very spicy. Turned out great and super simple.

Made this last week. We used salmon fillets which are super easy to make. Pretty much put the spice on and blackened in a cast iron skillet on the stove. It turned out great and I should have fresh fish at lease once a week.
