This recipe needs a little prep with the 2 hours to marinade - but I often do it in the morning before work. The fish cools quickly cut into chunks so we often eat this during the dog days of summer when room temp food is welcome. If you want a little fruitiness - make a peach or plum chutney. We eat ours with cucumber raita or a Jerusalem salad.
Spiced Salmon Kebabs (Tandoori Rawas)
Ajowan, sometimes called ajwain or carom, is a spice related to caraway and cumin, and you can find it in most Indian markets. It tastes similar to thyme, but it's more astringent. If you can't find ajowan, omit it.
