Why you'll love  this recipe:

- Only 5 ingredients - Ready in 15 minutes - Recipe can easily be halved or doubled


For this recipe you will need: cajun seasoning, salmon, honey, butter, & olive oil.

Combine butter, honey, and 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning in a small bowl and whip with a fork until combined and ingredients are well incorporated. Set aside.


Pat salmon filets dry with paper towels.  I like leaving the skin side intact. Sprinkle about ½ teaspoon of cajun seasoning over the top of each filet. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.


Add olive oil to the hot pan to heat, then place filets in the hot oil, skin side down first. Sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked to your liking.


Once cooked, transfer salmon to a plate, and top with a heaping tablespoon of cajun honey butter. Option to top with fresh chopped herbs and a squeeze of lemon.
