Indian-Spiced Salmon with Basmati Rice

    I like this recipe because it lets the delicious flavor of salmon shine through. The spices enhance the flavor, and not overwhelm it. This is for a true salmon lover only. If you need to mask the taste of seafood, this will not do it for you. Ultimately, I prefer sweet/spicy glazes better as my go to recipe.

    Very good recipe! We normally just cook salmon with lemon juice and rosemary and this was totally different and delicious. Loved getting to use some of the spices I have in my pantry but don't use as much. I would definitely make it again for my family, but would probably stick with my traditional way for guests since some people don't like Indian flavors. I served it with the Indian-Spiced Okra and whole wheat couscous with almond slivers and parsley.

    I didn't think this had any kick at all. It wasn't bad, but I felt it tasted like salmon, not Indian-spiced salmon. Also, my salmon dried out quite a bit. The rice was good, but I may add a little more cashew next time. I would try it again but only with some of the suggestions I read here (marinating).

    I thought this was delicious, and very satisfing. I made the salmon with the accompanying basmati cashew rice and broccoli.

    Good recipe, although I would agree it was on the tad bland side. Next time I make it Im going to try to marinate the salmon in a tikka masala sauce for a few hours then put on the spices in this recipe. I substituted all spice for the masala spice they asked for in this recipe. I would also suggest leaving it covered in the boiler for 12-15 minutes before uncovering it for four minutes. Those are my suggestions!

    A big disappointment. The salmon was very dry on the outside and barely done on the inside. We love Indian spicing, but this was very bland.

    Of all the salmon I've made, this was the worst. The flavors just didn't do it, and we love Indian food. So disappointed! My husband ate his, but I couldn't take more than 2 bites.

    This is my husband's favorite salmon dish that I make, out of at least a dozen that I've tried! The cashew rice is a nice touch as a side dish.

    Delicious. Excellent blend of spices. Will definitely make again.

    I bought a bag of frozen alaskan salmon, so I needed a lot of different salmon recipes. This was was pretty good, but I guess not that memorable, because I can't remember much about it.
