Cajun Salmon with Black Bean Salsa ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀



⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A delicious, healthy, but totally satisfying meal that will make you feel good. Ok, so they don’t have many salmon swimming down in Louisiana! Plenty of Catfish and I hear Gulf Flounder is fab, but as Cajun cuisine originated as a fusion of nations, I thought it was ok to come up with my version. Salmon takes on the smokey, spice beautifully and with the black bean salsa its a winning combination.
