Cajun Butter Baked Salmon

First, Cajun butter made pasta scrumptious, and now it’s doing wonders for salmon. We love cooking salmon as a massive fillet because it’s best for dinner parties or the one’s nights you do not want to dirty a plate (we get it). Plus, it also seems spectacular popping out of the oven!
