I love when I am searching through my recipes for something to make for dinner for the week and I come across a recipe that I haven’t made in awhile but that I love! That is what happened with the salmon recipe. We have made this several times before but probably not for at least a year so it was definitely time to pull it out of the recipe book for the week. This recipe is healthy, very easy and sure to please the crowd. The Cajun seasoning has a little bit of a bite to it, so you may want to substitute or use less for that one if your family isn’t into spicy. Jack loved it, but he has always favored the strong flavors. We served it with brown rice and green beans.
