Cajun Grilled Salmon


One of my favorite heart healthy meals!

2 Salmon fillets
1 T. Cajun seasoning (see below)
1 T. Olive Oil
2 12×12 Sheets of aluminum foil

Preheat grill to medium or medium high heat. (Works great in the oven, too!)

In a small bowl, mix together Cajun seasoning and olive oil, set aside.

Place single Salmon fillet on each sheet of foil.

Add 1 T. Cajun paste on each fillet; both sides.

Bring both sides of foil together and double fold the top and sides to form a pouch.

Grill for 12 to 15 minutes or until fully cooked. (Oven temperatures vary, but I’ve baked this in a 400 degree oven; check after 10 minutes.)

Salmon is delicious with any side dish, but I prefer it with roasted veggies.

Cajun Seasoning

1 T. Garlic powder
1 T. Onion powder
2 tsp. White pepper
2 tsp. Ground black pepper
1 1/2 tsp. Ground cayenne pepper
2 tsp. Dried thyme
1/2 tsp. Dried oregano
Salt is optional.
