The most flavorful salmon I have ever had. Had never used cajun seasoning and now I'm putting it on everything! I put a tiny sliver of butter on top of the salmon when it came out just to make it a little more indulgent. It melts all over it and is delish.

This salmon was pretty good. I coated them in a little coconut oil and once they were done I topped them with fresh lemon juice. served over some cauliflower rice.
