Barbecue Salmon Salad With Apple Butter Dressing

BY JOE ENGELBIRD from his Georgia Magazine feature

A recipe for 4
4 (3-4 ounce) salmon fillets
2 tablespoons Cajun or blackening-style spices
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Olive oil, as needed for cooking
1 cup apple butter
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup orange juice
Salad fixings, as needed
Coat each salmon fillet with spices and brown sugar. Let marinate for 10-20 minutes. In a hot pan, add a tablespoon or so of olive oil. Sear the fillets 3-4 minutes per side until cooked through. Note: This works well on the outdoor grill as well. While salmon is cooking, combine apple butter, barbecue sauce and orange juice; reserve. When salmon is done, place on top of the salad fixings and drizzle with the prepared apple butter sauce.
