Quick Tandoori Salmon Recipe : restaurant style recipe that absolutely ‘melts-in-your-mouth’ in every bite, made using homemade Indian tandoori masala that gives it a delicious rustic flavor. It has just the right hint of spiciness along with some tartness from lemon and literally melts in every bite. Perfect for special meals or weekend brunches too. Make ahead and simply bake n serve with choice of side.
This Quick Tandoori Salmon Recipe is by far our FAVORITE recipe using salmon and also for date nights. I mean what can be simpler than marinated and baked meals where the dish looks straight out of a certified restaurant yet you spent less than 10 minutes making it 😉
Seriously, 10 minutes is all you need to mix, prep and marinate these gorgeous fillets with a quick homemade Indian spice mix called ‘ Tandoori Masala’ and your lovely Tandoori Salmon Recipe is ready to bake. Now, if you’re a fan of Indian cooking or have eaten at any North Indian restaurant, you must have come across the term – Tandoori!
All ‘Tandoori’ recipes are spiced with an orange colored spice+yogurt marinate and cooked in a claypot deep oven called ‘Tandoor’ in India (hence the literal translation tandoori). Now as in these modern times, we seldom have tandoors at home (seriously takes 40 minutes to prep a tandoor using coals), so I’ve improvised and used a bake+broil method to get similar texture with our sweet home ovens.
Also, I made the tandoori masala at home however, you can find them really easily in any Indian grocery stores. They are usually in the spices aisle and there are some really great brands (if you need suggestions, drop me a message below).
This masala/spice-mix is really very easy and you can make a huge batch and keep for later.
I really don’t have much to write about the process of this Quick Tandoori Salmon Recipe as it’s literally that easy and quick 🙂 but I can definitely go on and on about it’s taste.
So, I’d rather take a leave and let you make this ASAP and try this deliciousness for yourself. It’s also featured many times on our Valentines Day meal too, so go ahead and give it a try.
