This salmon dish is one of my absolute favorites. It’s my go-to recipe when I want an elegant and simple dinner on the table in under a half hour. Cumin and coriander provide deeply earthy flavors, while paprika and cayenne combine to give heat and a beautiful brick color to the fillets. Drizzled with mint chutney, the buttery salmon flakes easily with a fork and melts in your mouth.
Speaking of chutney, mint (pudina) chutney is a remarkably versatile condiment that you will want to add to your repertoire. You may recognize this brilliantly green sauce from Indian restaurants, where it’s often served with samosas and other fried snacks. With this recipe you’ll have plenty of leftovers which you can keep in the fridge or freezer and use as a healthy dip for veggies or as a sauce for meat and poultry.
Open up a bottle of wine, get a nice sear on the salmon, and you’re all set for an unforgettable date night.
