Shrimp or Salmon Tikka

Want to add some spice to your shrimp or salmon? Try this easy indian-inspired recipe for a dish packed full of flavor.

I used a pound of salmon filet and 1 pound of shrimp when I made this dish… mostly for leftovers and to share for a Sunday dinner. You will have to buy the garam masala at an international or indian grocery store. I am unsure if Whole Foods sells it. Also, I forgot to take a picture of the salmon.. sigh. I made this marinade twice for each type of fish.


Salmon Fillets or Shrimp
Juice of 1 lemon
1 cup Greek Yoghurt
2 teaspoons Ginger paste-2 tsp
4-5 minced garlic cloves (feel free to use garlic paste, to taste)
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons garam masala
1 teaspoon red chili powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
About 1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt to taste

Add all ingredients except salmon or shrimp to a bowl and mix until combined. Spread yogurt mixtures on salmon and marinate 4-5 hours. When I marinated the shrimp I only did it for about 1 hour.

Cook salmon in oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or until desired done-ness. Cook shrimp on stove top or grill about 3 minutes per side or until pink on both sides.
