Recipe: Cajun and Lemon Pepper Salmon [Keto Friendly]

This salmon recipe is one of my favorite go to meals on Sundays. It only takes about 17 – 20 minutes to complete. I usually serve the fish with pasta and sauteed cabbage or roasted asparagus. Plus if there’s leftovers, I like to use the fish to make salmon croquettes!
