Note: Remember to dry the salmon pieces before marinating.


Add all the ingredients of green masala into a blender and make a smooth paste.

Clean the salmon and cut them into 2″x2″ pieces. Dry them using a paper towel. Add turmeric powder, cumin – coriander powder and salt to the cut pieces of salmon. Mix well. Add yogurt, lemon juice and green paste. Mix well so that the masala coats the salmon pieces well. Marinate fish pieces by refrigerating for about 4 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking tray with aluminum foil and arrange the salmon pieces. Brush the salmon pieces with oil. Bake them for about 15 to 20 minutes or till done.
