1. Preheat Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Season Salmon:

  • Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels. Season both sides of the salmon fillets with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  • In an oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium-high heat until the butter is melted and the pan is hot.

9. Garnish and Serve:

  • Once done, remove the skillet from the oven. Garnish the salmon with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
