Everyone needs a go-to Salmon recipe …

And this is ours - Cajun Salmon with Mango & Avocado Salsa.

As always, we like to keep these recipes easy, delicious, and straightforward.

It's perfect anytime, whether you want to whack it together on a Tuesday night or impress some of your friends on the weekend, the recipe does just that. 

It's a family favourite of ours, and I think it's my Dad's (Bob) favourite. And every time he goes to make it... he messages me and says, "guess what's for dinner?".

I laugh because I know the answer; every single time, it's - Cajun Salmon with Mango & Avocado Salsa. 

I haven't found a person who doesn't like this recipe, and I don't think you will either. 

If you don't have a spice, no stress, substitute with what you have, or leave it out! 

Over the years, I've served it with different things; my favourite is with some roasted potatoes on the side. Whether it be sweet potatoes or white potato, it doesn't matter; any will work. Adding some finely sliced lettuce to the salsa is excellent, too - it adds a little crunch. 

This recipe couldn't be any easier, and we hope you love it as much as we do (and Bob). 

Here it is ... 

Cajun Salmon with Mango & Avocado Salsa

*Serves: 4 

For the Salmon

4 (about 150g each) skinless salmon fillets, pin-boned

4 tsp smoked paprika

2 tsp dried oregano

3 tsp garlic powder 

3 tsp onion powder 

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp sea salt

1⁄4 tsp cayenne pepper

2 Tbsp. coconut oil/ghee

For the Mango Salsa

1 mango, peeled and cubed

1 avocado, peeled, cubed

½ red capsicum, deseeded and cubed

1-2 spring onions, sliced finely

¼ cup coriander leaves, roughly chopped

¼ cup mint leaves, roughly chopped

Juice of half a lime 

Sea salt & pepper 


Cut salmon into bite-size pieces. Mix herbs, spices, and salt in a shallow dish. Coat salmon pieces in the spice mixture. Set aside while you prepare the mango salsa.

Gently combine all ingredients in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper—place in the fridge.

Heat a large frypan over medium-high heat. Add half the coconut oil and heat for 2 minutes. Add half the salmon and cook for approx. 2 minutes on each side, or until just cooked through. Repeat with remaining salmon. Serve with mango salsa and any other sides you like.
