Cajun Honey Butter Salmon
4 salmon fillets
1 stick of unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
Olive oil and salt and pepper to taste for the salmon fillets.
In a bowl, mix all of the seasonings and honey into the room temperature butter until it's smooth and evenly mixed.
Pat the salmon fillets dry with a paper towel and rub with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides.
Heat a skillet to medium/high heat. Cook salmon about 5-6 minutes per side until it creates a nice crust on both sides.
Take the salmon out of the skillet and place them onto a plate. Place a generous dollop of the cajun honey butter on each fillet, both sides, and let it rest for a few minutes.
Boom..... Done.... Eat it.
