Grilled Spinach Salmon

Finally we have started using salmon regularly. I have been cooking it with slight modifications every time. We love grilled salmon with different spices. This is one such recipe I tried recently. It tasted great.

Ingredients:
18oz salmon fillet
Olive oil

Spinach paste (Make a paste of following) –
3/4 cup chopped spinach
1 tea spn ginger
1 tea spn garlic
4 green chillies
3 cloves
1″ cinnamon
1 tbl spn lemon juice
Salt

Method:
Apply the paste to salmon piece and keep it aside for about an hour.
Heat a grill pan (or outdoor grill), spread some olive oil. Grill the salmon till done (I remove the skin after one side is done, like I did for this recipe).
Serve hot.

Serves : 1-2
Preparation time : 20mins

    Oh wow, that is a unique marinade. Kinda like desi-shtyle pesto :) Love the green.

    What is Salmon called in India? Or if it is not availabl, what is the closest equivalent you get in India?

      Navin, Please check Bina’s comment below. I am sorry, I don’t have more info on this. I have heard Salmon is available in Bangalore these days.

    yuck! Looks like you have gone crazy with spinach. I used to like your website/recipes for being authentic konkani styles. But off lately i feel there is no point checking your website for new posts.

    Spinach salmon looks yuck & i bet it tasters even more yuck

      Vidya, I have said this before and repeating once again. This is a personal blog and I will post what I cook and like. There are hundreds of recipes on this blog and you can look for what suits your taste. I never said this will be an exclusive Konkani food blog, I will never do that. The least you can do is be polite while expressing your views. Btw, there are many people who like these recipes and I am glad I am able to help them in a small way. It also helps me to keep track of the recipes that I have tried and loved, so they will be posted here. It is a kind of online diary for me to save what I like.Many times readers ask for somethings and I post them if I know the recipe/s or ingredient/s.

    Hey Navin, in India, the fish that is called Ravas is called Indian Salmon.Its indeed a very tasty fish back home, unlike the strong smell of Salmon in USA.

    I have heard from one of my colleagues, who is Brithish that Salmon and Spinach goes very well together.Never tried it though.Very nice recipe

    In a personal blog,it is the author’s wish to put up what ever they feel like.Readers have the right to choose not to read them.Instead of that u don’t have the right to insult some one with ur acid tongue.I am sure no one is forcing u to go through this site.Shilpa has been doing a brilliant job which most of us cannot do(even if we wish to).Don’t be discouraged by such comments,Shilpa.Keep up the good work.Yours is one of the best cookery blogs I have ever come across.

  • closeupsmile March 10, 2010, 12:54 pm

    I am sorry Shilpa.I was just upset by that ill mannered comment.So Iwrote what I felt.I know this is not the place for arguments.

  • Neha March 10, 2010, 1:39 pm

  • Prem March 10, 2010, 2:51 pm

    In a personal blog,it is the author’s wish to put up what ever they feel like. People should remember to use a polite way of expressing whether they like the recipe or not. Shilpa is not forcing us ti try. It’s idividual’s choice. I LOVE IT SHILPA. FOR SURE I AM GOING TO TRY. YOU HAVE A GREAY TALENT.

  • Bianca March 10, 2010, 2:56 pm

    • Shilpa March 10, 2010, 3:07 pm

      Yes, i guess this will work out great when baked.

  • Santosh March 10, 2010, 2:58 pm

    Shilpa,

    It is important to note here that you have been doing an absolutely commendable job of being courageous enough to experiment with so many ingredients (besides reviving the old world, almost forgotten authentic konkani recipes to make them suitable to modern way of life), and meticulous enough to post them on the blog and sharing it with so many of us. Your blog is like a gem amongst foodies and novices. You have been doing a tremendous job of maintaining it so well and catering to each and every request from your readers, inspite of your busy schedule and a regular job. You still continue to post new recipes every 2 -3 days, is what amazes me. This Spinach Salmon Grill is what I would call as the healthy version of our regular recipes.

    So don’t let comments from people like “Vidya” damper your enthusiasm. Its amusing that she has written a comment on your recipe without even trying it out. It just reflects the kind of person she is, and probably venting out some misplaced anger .

    Keep up the good work!!

  • Medha March 10, 2010, 3:26 pm

    This seems like such a great combination. I have to try it. Thanks for your innovative approach to cooking– it keeps it interesting and new.

    Keep it up.

    Medha

  • Soma March 10, 2010, 5:20 pm
