  • 4 6- ounce salmon-fillets
  • salt-and-pepper to taste
  • 1 pound large-shrimp peeled-and-de-veined
  • 8 tbsp butter divided
  • 2 tbsp honey

Cajun Seasoning

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic-powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp onion-powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne-pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried-oregano
  • 1/4 tsp crushed-red-pepper-flakes


  • In a small bowl stir together all cajun seasoning ingredients and set aside.
  • Season salmon with salt and pepper to taste. Melt two tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add honey and whisk to combine (mixture should be bubbly). Add salmon fillets to pan and cook for 5-6 minutes, then flip and cook another 7-8 minutes until salmon is cooked through, flaky, and browned. Transfer salmon to a platter and cover to keep warm.
  • Add remaining butter to the pan over medium-high heat. Once butter is melted, stir in cajun seasoning. Add shrimp to pan and saute until opaque, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Serve salmon topped with shrimp. Drizzle any extra pan sauce over the top and garnish with chopped parsley if desired. Serve immediately.
