Grilled Salmon in unauthentic sauce- tangy, tasty n exciting

Salmon in a sauce; never before experience

Salmon as a fish is truly exciting in terms of taste and food value. This fish with pink flesh, found abundantly in the Atlantic Ocean is a rich source of phosphorus. Salmon is quite popular in the Western countries. Influenced by one of my friend staying in the US who is a culinary expert, I dared to experiment with salmon and a quite ’out of the box’ sort of sauce which came out amazing and I was truly extraordinary. Let me share my recipe with all my fish lover friends.

Ingredients: (for preparation of 4 persons)

Salmon fillets (350 gms.),

Coconut milk (1 can),

Peanut sauce (3 tablespoons),

Tamarind paste (2 ½ teaspoons),

Onions (2 medium sized crushed in the form of a paste),

Garlic paste (1 teaspoon),

Ginger paste (1 teaspoon),

Galangal (1 tablespoon),

Tamarind paste (1 ½ teaspoon)

Salt as per taste,

Olive oil (1 tablespoon),

Peanuts roasted to enhance the taste.


Preparing the salmon fillets:

Brush the salmon fillets with olive oil and salt and roast in oven for 5-7 minutes till it get completely soft. Remove from the oven and keep aside.

Preparing the sauce:

Take 1 ½ tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan and heat it. Add the ginger paste, garlic paste, peanut sauce, onion paste, tamarind paste, galangal in it. Simmer one can of coconut milk into it. Use a spatula to mix all the ingredients till it forms an even blend. Roast a small amount of peanuts (25 gms. ,de -skinned) and keep aside. Toss the grilled salmon fillets with the sauce prepared and garnish with chopped parsley, coriander leaves and roasted peanuts.

You will really enjoy this unauthentic taste of the sauce which is a blend of sweet, sour and salty flavors. Discover a new way of enjoying fish.
