Before starting, preheat oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut celery into 1/4-inch pieces. Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter, then onion, celery and 1/2 tsp garlic salt (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring often, until tender, 3-4 min. Add rice and cook, stirring often, until toasted, 1-2 min. Add 1 ¼ cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) and broth concentrate and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low. Cook, still covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
Core, then cut bell pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Cut tomato into 1/2-inch pieces. Zest half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut lemon into wedges. Thinly slice green onions. Drain shrimp and pat dry with paper towels. Pat salmon dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with half the Cajun seasoning and 1/2 tsp garlic salt (dbl for 4ppl). Season with pepper.
Heat a large non-stick pan over high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4ppl), then bell peppers and remaining garlic salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp and blistered, 3-4 min. Remove pan from the heat and transfer peppers to a large bowl. Add tomatoes and half the green onions to the large bowl. Toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
While peppers cook, arrange salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle with ½ tbsp oil (dbl for 4ppl). Bake in the middle of the oven until fish is opaque in the centre, 6-8 min.**
Heat the same pan (from step 3) over medium heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then shrimp. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp just turns pink, 3-4 min.** Stir in remaining Cajun seasoning and remaining green onions. Season with salt and pepper. Remove pan from the heat, set aside.
