Cajun Grilled Salmon

Regarding BBQ, Inc.
This Cajun Grilled Salmon Recipe gives one of our favorite fish a bit of heat and a lot of flavor. This salmon can be served as the main attraction or grilled up and used in tacos. This is the recipe for you if you love Cajun spices!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets or 2 6-ouce salmon steaks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne, use more or less to your liking


Combine seasonings in a bowl, mixing well. Place salmon fillets in a large resealable bag. Add Cajun seasoning and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Preheat grill. Remove salmon from bag and place on hot grill. Grill salmon fillets for about 4 to 5 minutes per side, 6-8 minutes for salmon steaks. Remove when done. Salmon should be light in color and flake easily through the thickest part.

Great grilling rub for salmon, Member sonyarosebower

My whole family LOVED this! I substituted creole seasoning for the spicy cayenne pepper since I have 2 young boys. Even my 12 year old asked for more and he does not like salmon! I will keep the extra seasoning in a bag in the freezer for future use!
