Recipes–Tandoori-Style Grilled Salmon

This recipe is simple to make involving just a marinade, a few hours resting, and a few minutes cooking.  I have tried to get this right many times – I recreate from memory and sometimes I forget few things – and this time I’ve done it.  This dish is designed to be grilled in an oven, but there is no reason why you couldn’t grill it on an outdoor grill.

Tandoori-Style Grilled Salmon

* 1 1/2 lbs. Atlantic filet, skin removed, cut into 2-3” pieces

* 1/2 cup reduced fat or whole milk yoghurt

* 1 Tbsp. whole coriander seeds, pounded

* 5 whole cardamom seeds, pounded

* 2 tsp. whole fennel seeds, pounded

* 5 whole cloves, pounded

* 1 Tbsp.  (approx.) ground cumin

* 1 tsp. ground masala (optional)

* 2 tsp. curry powder

* 2 tsp. ground cinnamon

* 2 tsp. garlic flakes

* 5 grindings fresh black pepper

* salt to taste

- Put all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix well

- Refrigerate for 5 hours (3 is the minimum), mixing once or twice

- Place the salmon pieces on a piece of tinfoil on an oven grill and grill for 8-10 min.

- Salmon is done when the tops are browned
