Local and Coastal: Cajun Salmon Recipe

April 17, 2020

By Abby Rogerson, WSG Student Assistant

What’s more satisfying than a thick, deep red fillet of salmon? That fillet blackened with a blend of Cajun-inspired spices.

By Bobbie Buzzell, WSG Science Communications Fellow

Given the success of the kelp aquaculture webinar last month, we decided to take to the kitchen last weekend and test out a kelp noodle recipe.
