Salmon New Orleans

Hello Friends!

It’s Hot Dish Honey here to give you a new recipe!

If you like Cajun seasoning, this is an amazing recipe that I think you are going to LOVE!

This recipe is easy, straight forward, and includes shrimp and salmon — some of my absolute favorite things to eat.

This dish is inspired by Red Lobster’s Salmon New Orleans.

It is essentially pan seared salmon and shrimp smothered in a honey, butter, and garlic sauce, seasoned with Cajun spices.

For our dish today you will need: 2 salmon fillets, one half pound of shrimp, 1-2 tbsp of Cajun seasoning (I bought mine from the store, but feel free to make your own), 2 lemons (1 for serving), 1 tbsp of honey, one half stick of butter, 3-4 cloves of garlic, and a few sprigs of thyme.

Start by seasoning the salmon and shrimp with the Cajun seasoning.

1 tbsp goes on the shrimp, then the other goes on the salmon.

Use the juice of 1 lemon to enhance and activate the flavors of the fish.

When you are done seasoning your seafood, put your butter in a pan and allow it to melt. Once melted, add your minced garlic cloves, a couple pinches of thyme leaves, 1-2 spoons of honey, and some extra lemon juice.

Next, add your shrimp to the pan and cook until they are pink and cooked through. Once cooked through, use tongs to move them to a plate.

Add a little bit more butter, olive oil and lemon juice to the pan, and then add in your salmon fillets.

Cook your salmon fillets for 5-6 minutes on both sides, depending on how thick they are.

You’ll know they are done once they are flakey and opaque.

Serve your salmon and shrimp on a plate, drizzle the sauce from the pan over them, then enjoy!

I served my salmon with wilted spinach and some bread to soak up the butter and oil.

This recipe would also be great served with a baked potato or even some asparagus.

Thanks for reading y’all!
