Cajun-Style Alaska King Salmon

  • 4 (4 to 6 oz. each) King Salmon fillets, thawed
    (Silver or Sockeye Salmon may be used instead of King Salmon)
  • 1/3 cup butter
    (if desired, olive oil may be substituted for butter)
  • 2 tbsp. Cajun Blackened seasoning mix
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup vermouth
  • lemon wedges
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts

Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in Cajun seasoning and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add vermouth. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add Alaska Salmon fillets or steaks. Cook for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, measured at thickest part, or until fish just flakes when tested with a fork. Squeeze lemon over salmon and serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings.
