Blackened Cajun Salmon

I LOVE Cajun spices! LOVE!

So found this spice mix at King Soopers and decided to use it on some salmon!

Normy got an 8 oz piece and I got a 6 oz piece

So I took the salmon, I always rinse it under cold water and then pat dry with paper towels, and then put it on a plate

then I drizzled some olive oil over each piece of salmon

rubbed it all over each piece

then sprinkled the Cajun seasoning over the salmon (again) I didn’t measure I was just very generous with the seasoning

Then I heat a cast iron skillet to high heat

I let it heat up for a good 7-10 minutes and then I threw the salmon in, Cajun seasoning side down

Cook on high for about 5 minutes, then flip the salmon and cook for another few minutes
