Local food blogger and home cook Keela Ferrell of @eatswithspoon shared her deliciously simple recipe for Tandoori Salmon with Sushi Rice. Enjoy!

Serves 2


For the Salmon:

  • 5-6 ounce salmon fillet (preferably without the skin)
  • 2 tablespoons SKORDO Tandoori Spice
  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 radishes 

For the rice:

  • 1 cup of sushi rice
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 bunch of cilantro




  • Make sushi rice via stovetop or rice cooker. 
  • Coat salmon with SKORDO Tandoori Spice. Let rest in the fridge for 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Prepare the vegetables: cube the avocado, slice the radishes, and de-stem the cilantro.
  • Warm a nonstick skillet with oil over medium-low heat. Raise the heat to medium-high. 
  • Place the salmon (skin-side up if skin still on) in the pan. Cook until golden brown on 1 side, about 4 minutes. Turn the fish over, and cook until it feels firm to the touch. Remove any salmon skin before serving. 
  • Once the sushi rice is cooked: mix in cilantro leaves, mirin, and white vinegar.
  • In a bowl, layer the rice, salmon, and vegetables. Then top with a sprinkle of tandoori spice. Serve with lemon wedge.

That looks delicious. Thanks for the recipe! I’d leave the salmon skin on, though. ;)
