Masala salmon

I’m hoping this counts as healthy, yummy, food. Fish is excellent for you, but I can be pretty picky about fish. One of the weirdest things I find about my own fish tastes… is that I like raw fish way more than cooked (monkfish aside — which is just delish). I’m not entirely sure why… but it probably has to do with the texture between cooked and raw.

Anyways this recipe is a little compromise on the above, as the salmon is smoked. Basically go and buy a fillet of smoked salmon and cut it into large-ish pieces. I took a 200g piece (sliced off the bottom) and then cut into 4. Let sit until it reaches room temperature and in the mean time occupy yourself with the masala.


Masala ingredients

  • black peppercorns
  • cumin
  • cloves
  • sea salt
  • paprika
  • nutmeg
  • cardamom

Adjust quantities to suit your and crush them all together until a fine dust.

Back to the salmon

Heat up a little oil in a wok. Take one side of each salmon piece and press into the spices dust. Cover the whole side. Once each salmon peice is coated on one side, place gently, spices side down into the hot wok (if you threw in a little of the spice dust it would immediately start sizzling). Cook the spices v. quickly and after about 40 secs remove from the wok.

Plate up and enjoy x
