The Best Cajun Blackened Salmon Ever.

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by likeamystic

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!

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.

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.
