Cajun broiled salmon

I’m always looking for more quick and easy weeknight meals that can be made in under twenty minutes.  I’ve been making a variation of this broiled salmon for many years and recently started seasoning it with Cajun seasoning.  This Cajun broiled salmon has now made it onto my list of regular meals that we all enjoy.  

I like to serve it with rice or quinoa and a quick cooking vegetable like roasted broccoli or asparagus.  It’s also good cut up on a salad with all of the toppings.   Once you know how to broil fish, you can customize the seasonings however you like.  Mustard sauces, sweet and spicy Asian sauce, or just simply butter with salt and pepper and lemon slices.  It will become a super fast go-to healthy meal.

For convenience and budget purposes, I buy a family pack of frozen salmon fillets at Aldi.  They thaw quickly and make eating fish affordable and accessible for land locked states like my own.
