1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

4 4-oz. fillets salmon (preferably wild)

2 tsp. Cajun seasoning

freshly ground black pepper

2 tbsp. butter

3 cloves minced garlic

1/3 c. low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth

juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp. honey

1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, plus more for garnish

2 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan

Lemon slices, for serving


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Season salmon with 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning and pepper, then add to the skillet skin-side up. Cook salmon until deeply golden, about 6 minutes, then flip and cook 2 minutes more. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add butter and garlic to the skillet. When the butter has melted, stir in broth, lemon juice, honey, remaining teaspoon Cajun seasoning, parsley, and Parmesan. Bring mixture to a simmer.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and add the salmon back to the skillet. Simmer until the sauce has reduced and the salmon is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes more.
