3 Ingredient Cajun Griddled Salmon

Salmon is one of my favorite fish to cook. It is high in omega-3’s which are essential for good health and the flavor is just amazing. That’s why I enjoy making this 3 ingredient cajun griddled salmon recipe.

Sometimes I like to spice it up by adding Cajun, Mexican or Indian spices, but other times I like the salmon just as it is, perhaps with a squeeze of lemon or  just some salt and pepper. Salmon is nice added to a risotto or quiche. There are so many things you can do with this wonderful fish.

The following 3 ingredient cajun griddled salmon recipe just requires 3 ingredients, and those are some Cajun seasoning which you can buy in a package, a little oil and the salmon itself. Griddling needs a high heat so you might not even want to use the oil.

3 Ingredient Cajun Griddled Salmon: Cooking Salmon Perfectly

Cook the fish over a high heat for a couple minutes a side and it won’t stick. This depends on your griddle pan. You can also poach, steam, fry, broil, grill or bake salmon, and the same principles apply. When it’s nearly ready to flake and hot all the way through, it’s done.

Serve this 3 ingredient cajun griddled salmon with a starch such as rice, potatoes or pasta, as well as a vegetable such as broccoli, zucchini, snow peas or corn on the cob. I like to serve it with 3-bean salad or sometimes with a baby leaf salad.

3 Ingredient Cajun Griddled Salmon
Salmon is so tasty, it barely needs any enhancing. If you want to add some spice though, add some Cajun spices and cook the fish over a high heat for a few minutes.

Well, a weather house is a little house in the shape of a Swiss or German chalet, and it is used to indicate the weather. Usually there are 2 side-by-side doors, with a girl in the left one and a boy in the right one. If the weather is supposed to be dry and sunny the girl comes out.
