Servings - 4 servings


  • 1 lb salmon fillet
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salad and dinner rolls, as side dish


  • Melt the butter.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the melted butter with the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne pepper. (*Note: if you have a Cajun seasoning blend, you can use that in place of the paprika, garlic/onion powder and cayenne pepper.)
  • Cut salmon fillet into individual serving portions. Place in small baking dish and season with salt and pepper. Pour the melted butter-spice mixture directly onto the salmon. *Let marinate for at least 30 minutes in the fridge, giving time for the butter and seasonings to settle onto the salmon.
  • Preheat the grill. Grill salmon, skin side down over direct heat for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Grilling time will vary depending on thickness of the salmon fillet.
  • Prepare the salad and fruit.
  • Serve Grilled Cajun Salmon over salad with side of fruit.
