Serves 4

4- 6 oz. salmon fillets, bluefish or swordfish would be great too
Monahan’s Cajun seasoning, enough to coat fillets (we sell this at Monahan’s)
1/3 lb. lump crabmeat or Jonah crabmeat
Rémoulade sauce, enough to just coat crabmeat (recipe follows or purchase from Monahan’s)
1 T finely chopped red pepper
1 T very thinly sliced scallion, include some of the green section
Olive oil

The quantities of the rémoulade sauce and the Cajun seasoning will be more than you’ll need for this recipe. The seasoning will last for months and the extra rémoulade will keep for at least a month in the fridge.
