Tandoori-Spiced Salmon Fillet Recipe

A splash of color and an Indian fragrance - that’s what a dish like this can bring to your table! Tandoori spice is traditionally paired with chicken, but it’s perfect for seasoning fish too, especially salmon fillets with their tender texture. Tandoori's spicy and hot notes perfectly match the freshness of ginger and yogurt in this summer-style recipe. You can serve it with Basmati rice or a simple and healthy salad.
