I grew up on this Simple Cajun Salmon. Both of my parent worked full time growing up, and it still amazes me how my mom would cooked dinner every night. Now that I am older I realize how lucky I was. That is why I had to learn how to cook. So I could enjoy and share the meals of my childhood.
This salmon was in our regular dinner rotation back then. Now I know why! It’s soooo easy, and it only has 3 ingredients. Well played mom…well played..
Emeril’s Cajun Seasoning….that’s it ( well some olive oil too). That is all that is on this salmon. Why is it sooo good? Probably because it’s not complicated. You literally sprinkle as much seasoning as you want, then cook the salmon in a skillet.
Yum… Oh the nostalgia…
