Hello you wonderful people! Today I’m sharing with you guys a recipe I make all the time. I initially came up with this recipe because my father in law loves salmon and he wanted to incorporate some healthier meals into his weekly routine of gujarati food. I probably make it just a WEE bit different every time but it ALWAYS turns out just as good!
Real “tandoori” dishes are made in an actual tandoor (clay oven), which cooks meats to the most perfect tenderness while lending a slightly smoky flavor. I don’t make this Salmon in the tandoor (since I don’t have one obvss) but it still delivers all that great flavor!
Side Note: Someone get me a a Tandoor PLEASE. k. thanks.
If you follow me on Instagram, you must have read about the “special” ingredient I promised to share with you all. My best friend, who is a chef, introduced me to this Swad Tandoori Masalaa couple of years ago and I have been HOOKED ever since. You can find it at your local Indian grocery store or buy it here: http://store.patelbros.com/swad-tandoori-masala/:
If you grew up in an Indian household you know how brand specific our parents can be when it comes to spices. You can buy five different tandoori masalas and each and everyone will be different. This one however, adds great color and flavor and never disappoints.
This tandoori salmon can be served as lunch, dinner or even as an appetizer when you are entertaining. You can also bake this in the oven to make it even healthier!
