Cajun Salmon

I have stolen this from my mate, and ex Chef, Rich. Well actually he did share it with me. I was at a loose end tonight re what to do for dinner, and add to that, that the Kennett’s are disappearing to Cambodia tomorrow. Luckily the little light bulb popped up and I remember Rich’s recipe for Cajun Salmon. The wife would love it I thought. It turned out to be an absolute belter. Surprising myself, as always, when cooking fish as I cannot taste it. I think it looks bloody amazing and Mary said it tasted just the same.

I think that looks absolutely amazing for a fish dish!

This is enough Cajun salmon for one person;

  • A jar of Cajun spice rub;
  • 1 Lemon;
  • 1 packet of fresh coriander;
  • Some vine tomatoes;
  • Sea salt & cracked black pepper; and
  • A jar of chili flakes for plating.
  1. Lay out some silver foil and lay the fish fillet in to the middle;
  2. Drizzle it with some good Olive oil;
  3. Sprinkle over a good layer of Cajun rub on the flesh side of the fillet;
  4. Sprinkle with salt & pepper;
  5. Squeeze half the lemon over the fish;
  6. Layer the coriander over the flesh side of the fish;
  7. Wrap over the silver foil to make a steam room for the fish; and
  8. Pop that in the oven on 200 for about 20-30 minutes. Make sure it is cooked through nicely – serve.

I also roasted some vine tomatoes. Just drizzle the with some Olive oil, and sprinkle with sea salt and cracked black pepper. I used the remaining lemon to give a final squeeze over the top of the fish when plated, and to create some wedges for additional sourness if the diner wished. Finally, I sprinkled some chili flakes on top of the fish for some colour. There you have it, my version of Rich’s Cajun salmon. It is a cracker – ENJOY!!!
