Cajun Salmon with Lemon Dill Sauce

This was bomb! My husband finished his plate almost before I could ask if he liked it.

This fish could definitely stand on its own but the lemon dill sauce really complements the Cajun seasoning.

Hubby isn’t such a fan of lemon but liked the sauce the way I made it.


Make this recipe with Tilapia… Just choose 4 (4 oz) filets and bake at 350 for about 20 mins.

Make this recipe with Orange Roughy… Just choose 2 (7 oz) filets and bake, covered with aluminum foil, at 400◦ for about 23 mins.

NOTE: You can use regular mayo instead vegan spread. I just don’t like mayo…
