Spicy, flavorful and steaming tandoori salmon served over bed of thinly sliced cabbage, green peppers and red onions!
Salmon is our once a week go to fish. One day I decided to change up my salmon marinate and make it tandoori style knowing how much my boys love the tandoori chicken. It was an instant hit and now I make it at least once a month for our weeknight meals. It is also a great party appetizer.
Wild Salmon is a nutritionally dense super food! This oily fish is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals (including potassium, selenium and vitamin B12) but it is their content of omega-3 fatty acids that receives the most attention.
Here is the step by step recipe for the most flavorful salmon:
Wash, pat dry salmon with paper towel and cut into 6 pieces.
Mix ginger, garlic, garam masala, red chili powder, turmeric, lemon juice, salt and oil. Add salmon and evenly apply spice paste on both sides.
Line a baking tray with aluminum foil or parchment paper. If using aluminum foil grease the foil with cooking spray. Arrange marinated salmon on the baking tray.
Broil on high setting for 10 mins until salmon starts to brown on the top. Depending on the thickness of the salmon steak you may need to cook a little longer.
Enjoy grilled tandoori salmon with hot on a bed of green cabbage, peppers and red onions with lime wedges.
Here are few other ways we enjoy healthy salmon:
