Grilled Salmon

grilled salmon

Since my childhood, our staple combo for lunch and dinner at home, usually has been rice and some kind of gravy/dal with one or more sidedishes. However it has gradually changed in the last 5 years or so. It sometimes amazes me. As much as I love my comfort food, I get pretty bored soon. I crave for something different very often. Considering Ishaan and V also have developed same liking, it has gotten easier for me. These days we have dinners where I just make bread/pizza/soup or grilled fish and we all enjoy it.

I have been making this grilled salmon every week, recently. It is very easy to put together. We like salmon when it is marinated well. I have seen chefs on TV apply some kind of marinade to it and immediately grill it, but this never works for us. We like it when salmon has completely soaked the marinade. So after applying all the spices, I leave it in fridge for a minimum of 5-6 hours, sometimes overnight. If I am in a hurry to make this, I cut the fish into bite size pieces, and then only 1-2 hours of marination time works. The really useful cast iron grill pan comes in handy for this one.

1/2 lb salmon
1 tbl spn lemon juice
1/2 tea spn cumin powder
1/2 tea spn coriander powder
1 tea spn chilli powder

Apply cumin powder, coriander powder, chilli powder, salt and lemon juice to salmon and leave it aside for atleast 5-6hrs (or overnight). Cut it into bite size pieces if you want to cut down the marination time to 1-2hrs.
Grill it till done.

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 20mins

    1. About 10mins from first side and 5 mins from second I think. I never go by time, just look at it to see is it looks cooked.
