Masala Spiced Salmon

This simple recipe is inspired by my Husbands South Indian fish fry, I simply marinated the salmon in masala powder than pan fried it, removed some of the oil and finished it off by poaching it. The kids and even my hubby approved.


  • a few salmon fillets
  • about 1-2 tablespoons of masala powder mixed with oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 small tomatoes sliced 
  • a little fresh basil
  1. coat the salmon with the masala powder and oil with salt and pepper and let it sit for an hour.
  2. add a little olive oil to a hot pan and sear the salmon on each side for about 5 min, then remove excess oil, add tomatoes and a lid and poach for another 5-10 minutes until the salmon is cooked through. I keep an eye on it and use a fork in the center of the fillet and know its ready when its flaky and I try it, always be careful not to over cook fish as it can get a little tough. 
  3. serve with rice and dal, or salad, cous cous, the possibilities are endless.

Happy Spring everyone.
