Salmon is one of the healthiest foods you can eat on Keto! It’s loaded with healthy omega 3 fats and there are so many different ways you can prepare it!
If I had to choose my favorite, I’d have to go with the Salmon Cakes because the bang bang sauce I use is absolutely amazing!
This salmon recipe is equally easy and delicious! I sauté fresh salmon coated with my Homemade Cajun Seasoning mix and make a creamy Alfredo sauce to serve it with. Also be sure to try this Creamy Cajun Shrimp made with Palmini noodles!
The cajun seasoning gives the sauce a spicy kick and really has incredible flavor.
How to Make Cajun Salmon Alfredo
6 pieces of fresh salmon (about 2″ wide/4 ounces each)
1 tablespoon + 1 Teaspoon Cajun Seasoning Mix (divided)
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon parsley
Heat a large skillet over medium. Add in the oil and half the butter.
Sprinkle the cajun seasoning over each piece of salmon and rub in gently with your hands to coat evenly.
Place each piece of salmon in the skillet, skin side up and cook for 3 minutes, then flip over.
Cook 3 more minutes, then remove the salmon and set aside. Look at that gorgeous color! Now you could actually finish cooking the salmon here and omit the cream sauce and you’d still have amazing flavor in the salmon. But I highly recommend turning the cajun salmon drippings into an Alfredo sauce!
Add in the rest of the butter to the skillet and once melted, sauté the garlic for about 20 seconds. Careful not to burn it!
Stir in the the remaining 1 teaspoon of cajun seasoning, then heavy cream, parmesan cheese and parsley.
Add the salmon back in to finish cooking. While cooking, spoon the sauce over the tops so that each piece is well coated.
Serve with your favorite veggie on the side! A little tip… if you’re cooking for anyone who’s not on Keto, you can add more heavy cream to the sauce and serve it to them over pasta. I did this for my husband and he LOVED it!
