Life has been a mad rush for the past couple of weeks. Long drives, lot of moving around, lack of sleep coupled up with work is not helping me much, but I am enjoying the time till it is around. Sometimes, we appreciate what was ours only once it is passed, right? Having learned that lesson several times, trying to make the best of the day with the whole family around and making it as much enjoyable as I can… 🙂
I love salmon, even though it is comparitively expensive to other fish. Once in a while, I buy fillet and sear it with salt and pepper, and have it loaded up with lots of salad – totally delicious. But as soon as I saw this post on FB by one of my favorite blogs, Blessings From My Kitchen (she had done a guest post for me eons ago, remember? 🙂 ), I had to try it. And what’s not in it? The ground masala is the highlight! So tenderly flavored, and doesn’t take away anything from the salmon. You can use any thick fish to replace the salmon, but I guess it is the salmon that carries this marinade so well! Since it is baked wrapped in foil, you lose nothing off it and the whole dish stays nice and juicy! Off to the recipe…
- 4 steaks salmon (around 500 gm)
- 2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
- 2 green chillies (increase as per spiciness)
- 8 green mint leaves
- 3 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
- 1 sprig curry leaves (approximately 8 leaves)
- 1 tsp black pepper powder
- Salt to taste
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
- Grind ingredients from ginger garlic paste to salt to as smooth as possible.
- Line a roasting pan with aluminium foil. Spread half the paste over it.
- Put the salmon steaks on top and brush the remaining paste on top of it.
- Cover with another foil on top.
- Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and enjoy!
