  • 1 pound salmon fillets cut into fillets
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced shallots
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 pound shrimp tiny or baby shrimp
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp cajun seasoning


  • Sprinkle the fish fillets with 1 tbsp of Cajun seasoning, both sides. Melt 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat and cook the fish, on each side, for 2-3 minutes or until about 125-F inside.
  • Remove the fish from the pan and add the chopped shallots and 1 tbsp of butter. Cook the shallots for a few minutes until soft and golden. Do not brown! Add the red pepper and cook another minute longer.
  • Add the cream to the pan and bring to a slow simmer. Add 1 tbsp of Cajun seasoning to the cream sauce, stirring up any bits from the pan. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the baby shrimp to the pan and bring back to a simmer. Serve spooned over the fish fillets and enjoy!
