Start by squeezing half a lemon on top of the salmon. Once the lemon juice is squeezed, season salmon with 1 tbsp of cajun seasoning. Add the remaining seasoning to the shrimp. Toss in order to ensure all of the shrimp are evenly coated with seasoning.
Once the seafood is seasoned, add butter and olive oil to a large skillet. When the butter is melted, add diced garlic, thyme, and a little honey.
Then squeeze the remaining lemon into the butter. Stir then allow it to cook for 3 minutes over medium-low heat.
Add shrimp and cook until pink and cooked thoroughly. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
Drizzle a little more olive oil into the pan over medium-high heat and add salmon fillets. Cook for 8-10 minutes, until cooked thoroughly.
Finally, place shrimp on top of salmon and serve with extra pan sauce - that buttery garlic sauce. Enjoy your Salmon New Orleans!
Salmon New Orleans is a meal within itself but if you want it to be even more filling, add a few sides. Here are my suggestions:
Salmon New Orleans is a great source of protein and fatty acids. This cajun salmon and shrimp dinner is a great dish to incorporate into your daily diet.
For this recipe, I used cajun seasoning with a little lemon to cut the fishy taste. The cajun seasoning is a one stop shop because it gives the salmon such a great flavor without adding too much or too little of any one ingredient.
For juicy, tender shrimp, sautéing is the best option. It also makes it so that you can easily tell when the shrimp is done and helps prevent overcooking the shrimp.
You will know when the shrimp is finished when it turns pink and curls a bit.
