Always plan yourself before you do the plating. Imagine your plate, and in a piece of paper do your outline how you want the plate to be. Always bear in mind your main meal should stand out from the accompaniments and garnishes. Think yourself your plate as a garden, main course as a monument and the garnishes the flowers around.

About Kerala: 

I am from the land of coconuts, Kerala, southern state of India. We can’t live without coconuts; it will appear in breakfast, lunch and dinner tables on different forms. We like to make curries with lots of coconut and coconut oil. On the whole we love coconuts!!





So please, indulge yourself and give this recipe a try, share with your friends and make it a staple in your home.

The ingredient that makes this better than the normal, in this salmon recipe is grated coconut. Yes, the addition makes this recipe all the more luscious and tasty. However, since coconut has more of a sweet taste, I think adding some herbs and bringing back the lemon juice gives it a great balance between sweet, savoury and so delicious!!

Method to cook Tandoori Salmon

  1. Make a paste with tandoori powder, salt, pepper, ginger garlic paste, yogurt, lemon juice and spread the mixture all over the salmon.
  2. Leave in the refrigerator to marinate for half an hour.
  3. Mix coconut powder, fresh grated white bread, salt, pepper, chopped parsley, chopped coriander and olive oil together in a tiny dish or bowl. I used a bowl, so really whatever works for you. It should resemble a crumbly, wet mixture. ( If you don’t like coconut, eliminate it)
  4. Coat the mix on top of the salmon. It sort of sticks to the salmon but it can’t defy gravity, so maybe don’t try to rub it on the sides
