Don’t even begin to ask me what that even means. All I know is that its fatty, but the good kind, and its found in salmon! Sure, we all enjoy our occasional lox & bagel for a smoked salmon fix or we go in on the salmon sashimi at our favorite sushi joint, but we should have a quick & delish way to make this succulent fish at home as well. Here is the most decadent way to make this divine fish. Oh and grab a tablespoon that’s all you really need for this recipe!
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning (I use Tony Cacere’s, but I am sure any pre mixed stuff works)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp. dried parsley flakes
Coat the fish filet (both sides with the skin on) with olive oil. Then dust on the garlic powder and Tony’s spice mix (about a half tablespoon per side) Turn your non stick pan to high heat, sear each side (approx. 2 min) and then cut the heat to medium otherwise your pan will smoke. (Warning it may smoke a bit when searing too so have the exhaust fan going just in case) Cook on each side for 5-7 min on medium heat after seared and squirt with lemon juice to finish (don’t do that when still in pan, squirt on serving plate). Also note the skin will slide right off so remove before serving. I only cook with it on so it seals in the moisture, OK I am salivating as I type this, just know its amazeballs. It serves as many as you want it to, one filet per person. Total prep & cook time is 15 minutes, so no excuses for not eating healthy! I usually serve this with roasted asparagus or a corn/avocado salad. Keep an eye out for those recipes coming soon!
Happy Eating, XO.
