Cajun Dish


Season salmon and shrimp with Epis and spices.

In a large pan on medium heat add 2 tbsp of oil, garlic, and sliced onions and saute for 1 minute.

Add the salmon to the pan and sear (about 5 min each side).The garlic may brown as it cooks, that’s okay. Flip the salmon and scoop the onions on top of the other side so they don’t blacken too much. Once the onions and salmon are cooked remove it from the pan and set aside. 

Next, Add 2 tbsp of olive oil to the pan. 

Add the shrimp to the pan and saute for 5 minutes.

Add the sliced red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, kale and asparagus to the shrimp and sauté for 2-3 minutes.

Pour in the can of coconut milk.

Add 2 tbsp of vinegar.

Taste the coconut milk to see if any other additional seasoning needs to be added. I usually add more cajun seasoning and red pepper flakes.

Add in the chopped parsley and cilantro and let simmer for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes add the salmon and onions back to the pan and cover for an additional 10 minutes. 

Once finished, drizzle the sauce over the salmon and your favorite rice. I like this dish with either jasmine or white rice.
