Crisp Cajun Salmon

© 2020 | | © 2020 |

This light, low carb meal is quick and tasty, perfect for midweek dinners. Crispy-skin salmon steak is the star of this dish, soaking up the earthy flavours of cajun seasoning blend. Serve on a bed of leafy greens with a few of blackberries and you have a healthy dinner that is ready in 15 minutes.

  • 2x150 g Skin-on salmon steak
  • 2 tbsp Beef dripping (or olive oil)
  • 1/3 tsp Dried oregano
  • 1/3 tsp Paprika powder
  • 1/3 tsp Garlic powder
  • A large pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • A handful of curly endive (or other baby greens)
  • Blackberries
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Lemon wedges
  • 1 tsp Chilli pepper, shredded
  • Dill fronds
  1. Combine the beef dripping or olive oil, oregano, paprika, garlic and cayenne powder in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the salmon and gently turn to evenly coat in the spice mixture.
  2. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the salmon, skin-side down and cook for 4-5 minutes or until skin is crispy. Turn the salmon and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for another 3 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and set aside for 5 minutes to rest.
  3. Meanwhile, combine curly endive, blackberries or grape tomatoes. Divide into two serving plates and top with salmon. Garnish with lemon wedges, shredded chilli pepper and dill fronds. | © 2020 | | © 2020 | | © 2020 |
