.4 salmon fillets, salted and peppered to taste
.6 tbsp. unsalted butter, room temperature (see note) 1 and a third cup honey
seasoning with cajun spices
.2 tablespoons powdered garlic
.2 tsp. Italian seasoning (dry)
.2 tsp. paprika (smoked paprika, if available)
.cayenne pepper (1 teaspoon)
.1 teaspoon powdered onion
.1 teaspoon black pepper, cracked – or 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, finely ground
.a quarter teaspoon of salt
.1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, crushed


Combine the ingredients for the cajun seasoning in a small bowl.
Whip butter for 2 minutes with an electric hand mixer until light and fluffy. Combine honey and cream in a blender until smooth. 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning, combined (Remaining seasoning can be kept for up to 3 months in an airtight jar)
Using a paper towel, pat the salmon fillets dry on all sides. Season with salt and pepper to taste after rubbing with oil all over.
Cook salmon for 6-8 minutes on each side on a preheated grill or grill pan, or until opaque and flaky.
Place a big dollop of cajun honey butter on top of each fillet after turning off the grill (or stove if using a grill pan).

Allow for about 30 seconds for the butter to melt, then distribute it all over the salmon using the back of a spoon. Flip it over and do the same thing on the other side.
If preferred, garnish with chopped cilantro or parsley and serve right away.
