I say it again and again. I’m all for quick recipes that make weeknight cooking a breeze. Salmon is pretty versatile and super healthy. Plus, you can cook it in a variety of ways. Here’s one of my faves.
Cajun Parmesan Salmon with Avocado Salsa
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning (non-salted)
½ teaspoon of Kosher salt
½ teaspoon of black pepper
4 tablespoons of butter
3 cloves of garlic, minced
The juice of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese
4 salmon fillets
Parsley, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a large skillet, heat the oil Season the salmon with half the Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper. Then add to the skillet and cook until the first side is golden brown. Flip, and then place the pan in the oven to cook through. Meanwhile, make the sauce.
Add butter to a skillet. Once melted, stir in lemon juice, Cajun seasoning, parsley, garlic, and Parmesan cheese. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Reduce the heat and once the salmon is done, top with the sauce and enjoy.
For the avocado salsa:
Just mix together a diced avocado and tomato with a bit of minced onion and garlic. Season with a pinch of salt, pepper, lime juice, and fresh chopped cilantro.
