Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with foil or baking parchment.

Meanwhile, prep your tartar by combining all ingredients. Taste and adjust seasonings/hot sauce if need be. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Add the potatoes to the baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl combine zucchini, oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Toss to combine.

Add to the baking sheet in a single layer with the potatoes and bake for 5 minutes.

Remove from the oven and add the salmon filets in the center of the baking sheet. Brush on olive oil.

In a small bowl or ramekin combine Cajun seasoning, brown sugar, smoked paprika and garlic powder. Mix to combine then evenly sprinkle each salmon filet with the seasoning/sugar mixture.

Bake for 10 minutes or until salmon is cooked through.

Top with parsley and serve with lemon wedges and the spicy tartar. Enjoy!
