Oven Baked Cajun Salmon is a great weeknight meal!  It’s a one pan meal that is easy to assemble and will leave you perfectly satisfied.  The salmon is tender and not too filling, and the veggies are roasted to perfection.  The Cajun seasoning gives off a bold, spicy flavor with a slight earthiness.  It’s an all-purpose seasoning that I use on a regular basis.

Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the salmon on the baking sheet.  If you did not have the skin remove from the salmon at the grocery store that is just fine!  Place the skin side down on the baking sheet and it will effortlessly fall off when done baking so no need to worry about removing it yourself.  If you did have the skin removed at the grocery store, place what would have been the skin side down on the baking sheet.

Drizzle the salmon with olive oil and sprinkle with 1-2 Tbsp Cajun seasoning, to taste.

Slice the bell peppers and onion.  Finely chop the garlic.  Place the peppers, onion, and garlic in a large mixing bowl.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning.  Toss to combine.

Pour the veggies on the baking sheet, surrounding the salmon.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature of the salmon is 145 degrees F.  The salmon should easily flake apart with a fork – this will help you know it is done!

Serve warm and enjoy!

If you’ve never prepared salmon before, this is a simple recipe I recommend for first timers.  It’s easy to prepare and you don’t have to play around with removing the skin (which I definitely think takes some practice) so you can impress your family or friends with a delicious meal without any fuss!

Happy Cooking!
