four 6 oz Salmon fillets or steaks
1/3 cup Cajun seasoning
1/4 cup Canola oil
1 cup Onions, diced
1 cup Bell peppers, diced
1 TBS Garlic, chopped
1 cup Fish or vegetable stock
1/2 cup Dry white wine

Rub 1 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning on each side of salmon pieces; reserve.

Place oil in a large saucepan and heat for 1 minute over high heat. Cook salmon for 2 minutes on each side; remove from pan and reserve.

Add onions, peppers and garlic to pan and sauté over medium heat until vegetables become slightly soft, about 3 minutes. Add stock and return salmon back to the pan. Cover and reduce heat to low, cook for 15 minutes. Remove lid, add wine and cook, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve over cooked long-grain white rice. 4 servings - Chef-Owner Wilbert Jones, Healthy Concepts - Chicago, Ill., USA
