How To Make Cajun Honey Butter Salmon
Mixing Cajun season ingredients in a bowl.
Beat butter for 2 minutes using an electric hand mixer until light and fluffy. Blend honey and cream in a blender until smooth. 1 tablespoon combined Cajun seasoning (remaining seasoning can be kept for up to 3 months in an airtight container)
Using a paper towel, pat the salmon fillets dry on all sides. Season with salt and pepper to taste after rubbing it with oil.
Cook salmon for 6-8 minutes on each side on a preheated grill or grill pan, or until opaque and crusty.
Spread a generous amount of Cajun Honey Butter over each slice after turning off the grill (or stove if you’re using a grill pan).
Allow the butter to melt for 30 seconds, then spread it over the salmon using the back of a spoon. Turn it over and do the same on the other side.
If you prefer, garnish with chopped cilantro or parsley and serve immediately.
