Cajun Salmon Fajitas

Norwegian salmon makes a great alternative to fish or beef in these Cajun salmon fajitas, for a delicious dinner with only a few minutes effort.
Active Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 4 wraps


  • 2 Norwegian salmon fillets
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp cajun seasoning
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • Favourite fajita toppings - I used jalapeño peppers and sour cream


  • Pre-heat your oven to 220ºC/200ºC fan.
  • Slice the peppers and onion. Place into a baking tray. Add 2 tsp olive oil and 1 tbsp cajun seasoning and toss to coat the vegetables. Cook for 10 minutes.
  • While the vegetables are cooking, rub a little (1 tsp approx.) olive oil onto the salmon fillet. Place the remaining cajun seasoning into a large flat dish and dip the salmon into the seasoning to coat it.
  • Remove the vegetables from the oven and turn the temperature down to 180ºC/160ºC fan. Make space in between the vegetables and add the salmon. Cook for a further 20 minutes.
  • Serve - I like to put the dish out on the table along with a pile of flour tortillas and any additional fillings and let people build their own wraps.
