  • Rinse salmon; pat dry with paper towels. Measure thickness of salmon. Sprinkle salmon with Cajun Seasoning; rub in with your fingers.

  • In a large cast-iron or other heavy oven-going skillet heat the 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Add salmon, skin side up; cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn salmon. Place skillet in oven. Roast until salmon begins to flake when tested with a fork. (Allow 4 to 6 minutes total per 1/2-inch thickness of salmon, including the browning time.)
