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.

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.
Grill the fish for 15 mins, making sure to turn it on all sides in between.
Once the fish is done roast some peppers on the grill and Serve .
Notes: Line a sieve with a muslin cloth and pour in thick curd and let it rest for 1/2 and hour. The water will drip off and you will get super thick curd.
