...For the nice gal at Cost Plus
who took an interest in the Marmalade I was buying...
(I'm sorry I didn't get your name)
I hope you really do come visit, get, & try the salmon we got to talking about!
...and the heat from the cajun spice...
I've posted this recipe before...but it bears repeating!
You'll have to double the recipe for the homemade spice if you are making more than a 1 or 2 pieces of fish.
3 TBSP Cajun spice (recipe to follow)

1/4 tsp. kosher salt
4 boneless, skinless salmon fillets (4-6 oz ea)
1/4 cup Orange marmalade
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
Combine Cajun spice, brown sugar and salt in a small bowl. Rub over all surfaces of fillets. Saute fillets in olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over med-high heat for 3-4 minutes. Turn & saute an additional
Blend marmalade & lemon juice; swirl in pan until melted. Carefully turn fish to glaze on all sides. Fish is done when it begins to flake when tested with a fork (about 1-2 minutes on each side)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp garlic powder
2 1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/4 tsp oregano

The marmalade may splatter, so dress accordingly!
If you make it, I'd love to hear about it!
Happy (fish lovin') snapping!
