Bottled spice blends are a time-pressed cook's best friend. Our Southern-spiced salmon gets added zing from Dijon and a squeeze of lime.


  • 1 to 2 tsp bottles Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 salmon fillets , each 180 - 250 g
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2-Jan lime


  • Preheat oven to 450F (230C). In a small bowl, stir Cajun seasoning with salt. For easy cleanup, line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place salmon, skin-side down, on the ungreased foil. Using the back of a spoon, spread Dijon over fish. Sprinkle with seasoning mixture.
  • Roast, uncovered, in centre of preheated oven until a knife tip inserted in centre of fish and held there for 5 seconds comes out warm. This will take 12 to 18 min. Using a wide spatula, remove fish to plates, leaving the skin on the foil. Squeeze juice from lime overtop. Great with rice.
