Salmon anyone?

Okay so I have a super easy salmon dinner..so good, simplest thing I make.
You just take a salmon fillet, about a pound, and put it in a foil lined bread pan. (since I don't make bread in my bread pan, this is a good alternative.) Have enough foil that you can wrap it up and over the salmon to cook.
Once you've placed the fish in the pan, shake as much as you want of your favorite cajun seasoning on it. (found in a spice jar looking jar. sometimes right by the fish/meats counter, other times with the other spices. our usuals are cajun choice, or northwest cajun. I'm not usually into "cajun" either, but this is good!) Obviously, the more you shake on, the spicier your fish will be. I usually put about a Tablespoon on..just enough to cover the whole fish, but not drown it. Next, just add a few slices of unsalted butter (again, as much or as little as you want.)
Then wrap the foil up and around, folding the ends together at the top (for easy opening later on), and put it in a 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes. For about the last 5, open up the foil, so it can get a little toasted on the top. Serve with rice (hooray for rice cookers, learned that in hawaii) and steamed veggies. yums! And the best part is, when you're done with the fish, you can throw away the foil, and your bread pan is still clean! woo hoo!
