Cornmeal Crusted Salmon

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 25 min.


Preheat oven to 425°F. Thinly julienne onion and halve cherry tomatoes. Combine buttermilk and 1 tablespoon of the Cajun seasoning. Place salmon in the seasoned buttermilk and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Combine other tablespoon of Cajun seasoning with cornmeal and set aside. In a bowl, combine halved cherry tomatoes, hot sauce, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, onions and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Place seasoned cornmeal on a plate. Place the top side of the salmon in the cornmeal and press so that the cornmeal creates a nice thick layer and set aside. Repeat with the remaining fillets.

In a skillet (use cast iron if you have it) heat canola oil. Gently add salmon cornmeal-side down and lower temperature to medium. Cook for 2 minutes or until crust turns golden. Place on a sheet tray and cook in oven for 8-10 minutes or until internal temperature of salmon is at least 145°F.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan for one minute. Add green beans and leave undisturbed for 2 minutes — you are trying to achieve a nice char. Season with ¼ teaspoon of salt and a pinch of ground black pepper. Cook for another 4-5 minutes, stirring minimally.

Serve salmon with green beans and a generous helping of the marinated cherry tomatoes.
