Safeway has an amazing deal on Atlantic salmon fillets right now – just $5.47/lb through December 13th with a Just for U Digital Coupon.  This is the perfect time to try a new salmon recipe. 

Salmon is so good for you and we eat salmon at least once a week.  I’m like to keep my salmon recipes simple because salmon is very flavorful on its own and easily takes on a variety of flavors depending on how it’s prepared.

My go-to salmon oven recipe is blackened salmon, which I prepare using the O Organics cajun spice blend.  It’s my favorite spice blend and a little goes a long way.  Simply drizzle olive oil on the salmon, sprinkle with O Organics cajun seasoning and a little brown sugar, and bake the salmon for 15 minutes at 400 degrees until it’s done.   

Serve with rice, pasta, or a simple salad.  It’s a quick, easy and healthy weeknight meal!
