2 salmon fillets skin on

1 tbsp Cajun seasoning divided

1 tbsp olive oil

Garlic Butter Sauce

3 tbsp butter divided

3 garlic cloves minced

½ cup white wine

2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped

2 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed

Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

Pat dry salmon fillets with a clean paper towel. Season the salmon with salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning.

Step 2

Heat the olive oil in a medium, non-stick pan or skillet over medium heat. Cook the salmon flesh-side down. Sear untouched for 3-4 minutes, then flip on the other side and cook for 2-3 more minutes or until it looks crispy and golden. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 3

To make the garlic butter sauce, using the same pan add 1 tablespoon of butter and the minced garlic. Cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Pour the white wine and bring it to a boil.

Step 4

Add in the remaining butter, chopped parsley, lemon juice, and Cajun seasoning. Simmer until it starts to thicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5

Bring the salmon back to the pan, pour a few tablespoons of garlic butter over each salmon fillet.  Serve immediately, drizzle with garlic butter sauce and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
