Spicy Yogurt Salmon

8 Sep

Middle eastern cultures uses a lot of yogurt in their cooking. I have altered traditional tandoori marinate for salmon. Sometimes it is fun to change pace and try totally different type a marinate you usually expect with salmon. If you like a lot of spice like my husband,  add more ginger and cayenne pepper.

  • 2 minced garlic gloves
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tbs coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups of plain fat free or low fat yogurt
  • skinless salmon filet

Mix all of the spices with the yogurt. Coat the both sides of the salmon with the yogurt marinade. Place in a dish and cover with plastic wrap. Marinade in the fridge up to 2-4 hrs. Scrape off the excess marinade, and lightly brush the fish with oil. Grill over medium high heat, turning once, until almost cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Serve with vegetables.
