Directions: How to Cook Tandoori Salmon W/Peach Chutney And Minted Yogurt Sauce
1 - Prepare the salmon: In a bowl, combine the olive oil and garlic. Rub the mixture all over the salmon. Sprinkle with the Garam Masala and season lightly with salt. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
2 - Make the peach chuteny: In a nonreactive saucepan, dissolve the sugar in the vinegar, stirring, over moderately high heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the peaches and ginger and return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring, until the fruit is softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
3 - Make the yogurt sauce: In a small bowl, combine the honey, mint, cumin, and turmeric. Whisk in the yogurt until blended. Season with salt and pepper, cover, and refrigerate.
4 - Light a gril or preheat the broiler. Grill or broil the salmon steaks, turning once, for about 4 minutes per side, or until nicely charred and just cooked through.
5 - Transfer each salmon steak to a warmed plate and remove the central bone with a fork. Serve with the peach chutney and yogurt sauce.
To make the Garam Masala: Combine all ingredients in a small jar. Cover and store at room temperature for up to 1 month. (makes about 6 Tablespoons)
