Methi Salmon Tikka

    We people love fish, but back home we could have a variety of fishes and and it all just tasted so great. After moving to the US i wasn't so open to try out the fishes we got here. Then it was salmon that saved our lives for long. I had been making a lot other recipes with the Salmon steak that we buy quite often , but this time i went to try out something new.

I wrote down this recipe pretty long back, even before i got married, but then i never knew i would try it out with Salmon of course. This is a Nita Mehta Recipe , i am just loving her a lot for her wonderful recipes. So , i gave it a try with Salmon steaks and it was just too good. I am sure to make it again and again.

Grind everything in the ' BOWL -1 ' and rub the fish with the grind paste and keep it for 1/2 an hour ( you do not need to wash the fish after this step ).
In a vessel mix everything under ' BOWL -2 ' with the fish pieces and let it marinate for 3 hrs.
