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. There’s a nice cajun cream sauce to add if you like. I usually serve the salmon with pasta and sautéed cabbage or roasted asparagus. Plus if there are leftovers, I like to use the fish to make salmon croquettes!
