Salmon Tikka

Salmon Tikka


A healthy way of having Omega 3 rich Salmon fillets marinated in mild tikka flavors, pan-fried to perfection. This can be served along with rice or mashed potatoes.

I must have tried a variety of marinades with this sea delicacy which is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. All I can say about this fish is that it has its own flavor and it does not need anything more than salt and pepper as seasoning. Salmon Tikka makes a perfect dinner platter with cooked rice, sauteed vegetables, and pan-fried Salmon fillets. A very ideal meal for weight watchers and those on a healthy diet.



Tandoori Fish ~ Salmon Tikka

Salmon is one of my favorites among the seafood, as it does not need any strong spices. It has its own flavor and does not give a strong aroma even while it is being cooked. In this recipe, I have tried to marinate the fish with a mild version of tikka flavors so that it does not overpower its original flavor.

Health Benefits Of Salmon:

  1. Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. This helps to reduce inflammation and lower blood pressure, improving overall heart health.
  2. Rich source of proteins, protecting bone health and maintaining muscle mass.
  3. Excellent source of B vitamins which is needed for producing energy and brain health.
  4. Good source of potassium which helps control blood pressure and prevent excess fluid retention.
  5. Helps in controlling weight.
