Instructions
For Tandoori Salmon Marination
  1. Clean the fish using water and wipe dry using kitchen towel. Roast gram flour in 1 tsp oil at low to medium heat till slightly golden color. Take 1/2 cup yogurt or curd in muslin cloth and hang it till water stops draining. Wrap the hung curd cloth with 3 layers of kitchen paper towel so that it absorbs remaining moisture from the curd to make curd more thicker. In a mixing bowl, add hung curd, garam masala, salt, tandoori masala, mint & coriander chutney, roasted gram flour, garlic & ginger paste, lemon juice and mustard oil. Mix all ingredients very nicely. Add salmon fish and rub the marination masala from both side. Refrigerate the marinated fish placing it in zip lock bag for 1-2 hrs.
  2. If you wish, cut the fish into pieces. Preheat the oven at 400 degree F. Line the baking tray with aluminum foil and grease some oil on it. Place the marinated fish carefully on baking tray. Place the tray in preheated oven on low rack. Bake it for 5-6 minutes then turn on it on broil mode, place the tray on upper rack. Let it broil for 10 minutes until fish gets dark brown color.
  3. Once it gets dark brown, flip the fish to other side very carefully. Make sure it doesn't break. Grill it for 6-7 minutes or until fish gets dark brown on other side. (Keep checking to ensure it is not overcooked as the grilling time would vary depending on thickness of the slices).
  4. When its done, remove grilled fish from oven, turn off the oven and let it cool down.
