Pan-Fried Salmon – Delicious fish for dinner tonight!

Pan fried Salmon fillets

This crispy, golden, pan-fried salmon fillets, mixed with aromatic spices, is a very satisfying dinner choice, served with a couple of slices of garlic bread, and an assortment of steamed veggies.

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

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 into your mouth!

Remember to scrape the juices and toss on the fillets and they will taste heavenly!

So, let’s make it;

Ingredients needed:

 Salmon fillets with skin removed 2 medium size
Kashmiri red chili 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
