It’s a New Year! If you did the holidays correctly…you’re probably thinking about healthy choices and what you can do that tastes great for the whole family. My boys love this and we make it weekly.
Perfectly Seared Salmon with a Killa Sauce
One of very favorite dishes, is Salmon. I buy the whole slab and make this once a week. It’s not hard to do and it NEVER disappoints.
Salmon CAN BE MADE WHOLE SLAB, HALF OR PORTIONED TO YOUR LIKING!
Season w/ Salt and Pepper (I WILL NOT TELL YOU HOW MUCH. Why? Because…we all know what we like. If you like a little extra salt…then you add it. If you don’t salt at all…don’t salt!)
Season with your favorite Cajun Seasoning. I like Slap Ya Mama or Tony Chachere’s.
Zest lemon. Sprinkle over that bad boy. Slice the lemon. Throw slices on top of salmon at the end before baking.
Brush with Olive Oil.
Bake 375 for 15 to 20. I go for 15 because I want to sear it after baking. I love the crispy golden crust from searing it.
Remove from oven. Cut a portion off and the fun begins!
Add salmon to hot oiled pan and sear both sides…golden and delicious. Sear one or two of the lemon slices. Remove from heat. Plate. Squeeze fresh lemon over seared salmon with a sprinkle of salt.
1/4 c Mayo (I use Avocado Mayo. It’s a delicious and a healthy choice)
Salt and Pepper
Lime juice or Lemon…both work beautifully
Spread Killa Sauce on plate then place Seared Salmon on top. Add a slice of seared lemon. BELLISSIMO!
