Pan Fried Golden Salmon Fillets – Super easy, mouthwatering fish for dinner tonight!!

This crispy, golden, pan-fried salmon fillet, mixed with aromatic Indian spices, makes a very satisfying dinner choice, served  on a bed of noodles – with a few slices of garlic bread, as shown in the picture or an assortment of steamed veggies.

The combination of spices gives a real fusion to the fish; moreover, tossing the fillets on semolina has taken a very rebellious turn comparing to the usual – the mild, just-salt-and-pepper version of the Western style marination.

Thanks to my Goan friend, Vancy, who used to live by the sea in Goa and taste fish in every imaginable form,  I got my salmon fillets just right this time.  None of the recipes that I browsed gives this novelty idea of wrapping the fillets with semolina.  Sensing my dilemma, she assured  that semolina gives a very beautiful, crispy, crunchiness to the fish fillets. Trusting her, I did the same and was thrilled with the outcome!

While pan frying the fillets in olive oil, you will notice the juices running out merrily, tempting you to burn your fingers, trying to grab a little piece from a side and pop it in to your mouth! Remember to scrape the juices and toss on the fillets and they will taste heavenly!

Ingredients:

 Salmon fillets with skin removed  2 medium size
Kashmiri red chili powder  1 tsp
 Cumin powder  1 tsp
 Coriander powder  1 tsp
 Turmeric  1/4 tsp
 Pepper powder  1/4 tsp
 Lemon juice  half a lemon
 Olive oil  1 tbsp
 Salt  1/4 tsp
 Semolina  2 tbsp
 Olive oil for shallow frying  2 tbsp

Let’s make it :

  • Combine chilli powder, cumin and coriander powder, turmeric powder pepper powder, olive oil, salt and lemon in a wide bowl.
  • Massage the fish fillets thoroughly with the marination.
  • Cover and leave for 20 min in the fridge.
  • Take out, sprinkle semolina all over the fillets covering both sides.
  • Heat a pan with 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Shallow fry until golden.
  • Serve immediately with a garlic bread, steamed veggies or even on a little dome of hot rice, your fish fillets will taste their best!
