Cajun crusted fish with kiwi citrus salsa

Cajun crusted fish with kiwi citrus salsa

My default seafood dish is grilled fish with a seasonal salsa – not overly creative but tasty and hard to get wrong. Well today I’ve upped the anti and added cajun to the fish – woo hoo!


  • 2 pieces white fish, bones and scales removed
  • 2 tablespoons cajun spices (paprika, cayenne pepper, thyme, oregano, garlic, salt, pepper)

For the salsa

  • 2 kiwi fruits, skin removed and roughly chopped
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled, seeds removed and roughly chopped (I’ve actually used half a pomelo, but you can choose any citrus you like, I prefer the tartness of yellow citrus than the sweetness of orange)
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • Handful coriander, roughly torn or chopped


Heat a grill to medium/high. While the grill is heating coat both sides of the fish with cajun spices. Once the grill is heated, place the fish on the grill.

Add the salsa ingredients in to a small bowl (trying to retain as much of the citrus juice as possible) and toss to combine.

Once the fish is opaque half way up one side turn it over to cook the other side.

When the fish is cooked through serve it on a plate topped with the salsa.

Quick and simple!
