Cajun Salmon Sandwiches


  • olive oil
  • 2 3/4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Cajun seasoning plus 2 teaspoons
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 6-oz. salmon fillets
  • 8 large leaves romaine lettuce
  • 12 large slices tomato
  • 2 cups finely shredded cabbage


  • Heat a little olive oil in a large skillet (preferably cast iron) over high heat for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise with 1 to 2 teaspoons of Cajun spice; taste then add salt, pepper or more Cajun spice as necessary; set aside. Lightly oil both sides of salmon fillets and sprinkle with remaining Cajun spice (the more you add, the hotter it becomes, so be careful!).
  • Place salmon in the hot skillet to blacken; cook for 2 to 3 minutes then turn and finish cooking (cooking time will vary based on the thickness of fish and the heat of the pan). Top each pair of lettuce leaves with some of the mayo sauce, the blackened salmon, 3 slices of tomato and some of the shredded cabbage; roll up and serve
