I am also on a lookout for good salmon on sale whenever I go. If I find one, it is a prized possession because it makes for a creamy cooked fish. My go to recipe with it is baked and broiled with some spices and it makes a great dinner or lunch.
I got one such salmon fillet when my parents were visiting last year. Usually, they make a kalia kind of curry with salmon because they find the smell strong. But this fish was so fresh that they decided to make a light jhol/curry which is usually reserved for freshest of fish.
You can easily substitute salmon with any other fresh fish - tilapia or even small fish like smelt.
With a little tomato and onion forming the base of the curry, this was a great lunch with some steamed brown rice.
1 fillet Fish - cut into 4-5 pieces
1 large tomato - chopped
1/2 onion - chopped
2 green chilli
1 tspoon kalo jeere (nigella seeds)
1/2 tspoon turmeric powder
1/2 tspoon cumin seed powder
Salt to taste
5-6 tbspoon oil
bunch of cilantro - chopped
Shallow fry the fish in 3-4 tbspoon oil. Set it aside.
Temper the rest of the oil with nigella seeds and green chilli.
Then add the onions and saute for 3-4 minutes. Add the tomatoes, turmeric powder and cumin seed powder and let it cook with closed lid for a couple of minutes.
Then add salt and 1 cup water and let it cook for till it comes to boil. Add the fish pieces and cook on low for 3-4 minutes.
Add the cilantro and take it off the heat. Let it rest for 2-3 minutes. Then serve with rice.
