Indian Style Salmon--Dahi Machhali Masaledar
Sooo busy. I barely cooked, barely ate this week. So here is the salmon recipe. It turned out really well, and was sooo easy to make. What a healthy meal!
This is good for about 4 small pieces of salmon
1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 (2 inch) pieces fresh ginger root, minced
2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon ground coriander seed
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
4 skinless, boneless salmon fillets
Combine the yogurt, cayenne pepper, garlic, ginger, cilantro, ground coriander, cumin, salt and turmeric in a resealable plastic bag. Close bag and mix everything together until evenly combined. Add the salmon and toss until well coated with the marinade; marinate overnight.
Preheat the oven broiler. Lightly grease a baking pan.
Remove salmon from marinade and shake off excess; discard remaining marinade. Place onto prepared baking pan and broil in preheated oven until salmon flakes easily with a fork, five to seven minutes per side.
Because Monday is a holiday, I'll be making some soup (TBA), and hopefully bread without the help of a bread machine. I want to make something that tastes like restaurant quality bread.
