Easy Creole Salmon! Only 2 ingredients - perfect weeknight dinner!

If you’re like me, you are always trying to find new ways to cook fish. Truth is I tend to find salmon, and fish in general, to be a little bland. I’m picky about my fish recipes because I definitely need some flavor going on. I rarely order in at restaurants for this reason.

But this salmon is quite tasty – plenty of flavor, yet it doesn’t overpower the salmon. It can be a little spicy though, just so you know. I never think it’s too much, but if you have some people that are sensitive to spicy, just pull back on the amount of seasoning you add.

In case you are unaware, here’s a fun little tip for when you buy your salmon. I’m a not a huge fan of the skin on the bottom – it’s pretty slimy and gross. But you can usually have them take it off at the grocery store for you right at the counter. Easy!

Easy Creole Salmon

Yield: 2-3 salmon filets

Ingredients:

1-1.5 lbs salmon
Creole Seasoning

 

Directions:

1. Cut the salmon into the two filets, if it isn’t already cut.
2. Line a pan with aluminum foil, then add the salmon.
3. Sprinkle the seasoning on top of the salmon. The more you use, the spicier and more flavorful it will be.
4. Bake at 400°F for about 18-23 minutes. The larger the filet, the longer it’ll need to bake.

NORE: Feel free to use another Creole seasoning, this is just the one I prefer.

Enjoy!
