Ingredients 

For garnish

  • 1 tbsp green onion chopped
  • ½ medium lemon

Instructions

  • Pat dry salmon, then cut it into bite-size bites. Lightly season them with salt and pepper.
  • Pour vegetable oil in a non-stick skillet and heat on medium-high heat.
  • When the oil is hot, add and fry salmon in small batches, 1 minute for each side. Do not overcrowd the pan. Then transfer fried salmon to a clean dish.
  • Drain and discard the excess cooking oil. Add and melt unsalted butter in the pan.
  • Once the butter has completely melted, add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute over low heat.
  • Then add Cajun, other spices, and honey to the butter garlic mixture. Give the sauce a few stirs to dissolve everything completely.
  • Add salmon bites to the pan. Gently toss and coat all the salmon with the sauce. Immediately turn off the heat.
  • Transfer the salmon with Cajun honey butter sauce to a serving dish. Garnish with chopped green onion. Quickly squeeze a splash of fresh lemon juice on top before serving.
  • Serve hot immediately.
