Step 1
Place Wild Salmon Fillets (2) skin side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle with Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) .
Step 2
To make Cajun Seasoning, combine Sea Salt (1/2 tsp) , Fennel Seeds (1/2 tsp) , Dried Thyme (1/2 tsp) , Dried Oregano (1/2 tsp) , Smoked Paprika (1/2 tsp) , Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/2 tsp) , and Cayenne Pepper (1/4 tsp) .
Step 3
Sprinkle Cajun Seasoning equally over both fillets and rub into the fish.
Step 4
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the salmon filets skin side down/seasoned side up, and cook for approximately 5 minutes until the bottom of the salmon is cooked and you can easily separate the skin from the fish with a spatula.
Step 5
Return the partially cooked salmon to the foil lined baking sheet, seasoned side up. Slice Lemon (1) into thin slices and top with 2 to 3 thin slices of lemon.
Step 6
Broil salmon in a preheated oven in the upper rack and leave oven cracked open for an additional 4 to 5 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and fish is just cooked through.
Step 7
Serve with a side of Broccoli (1 head) steamed over boiling water for approximately 2 to 3 minutes until crisp-tender. Toss with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice to taste.
Step 8
Enjoy!
