Spicy Chilli Salmon | Spicy Fish Dry | Easy Fish Side Recipe

When I came to London, I craved for fish and struggled a lot to find a good place to buy them. Later as time went by I understood that people mostly buy fish from the frozen section and there are handful of shops that sell fresh fish. So clueless me got Salmon, which I have never cooked/ ate before. Later I learned that Salmon is high in Omega 3 and is very good for health. This made me try an Indian version of the dish. Since my better half and me love spicy food, tell me what can stop us from trying out a spicy version ;-) We almost have this every week, so its a staple dish at home. 

This is my own recipe and its the most simplest dish you can make. Its unlike the usual fish fry where we add lots of oilEven if you are not an Indian like me you can make it by altering the spice levels, will tell you all about it hang on...


Prep & Cook time ~ 15 mins
Serves ~ 2 
Recipe Source ~ own


Salmon fillets - 3 (palm size, preferably boneless & definitely skinless)
Onion - 1 large, finely chopped
Tomato - 1 large, finely chopped
Green chilli - 5-6 quartered (replace if you like with capsicum/ bell peppers)
Red chilli powder - 1/2-1 tsp (according to spice tolerance)
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Oil - 1 tsp

  • Cut the salmon fillets into small cubes and keep aside
  • In a hot pan, add oil and fry the onions and green chill, let it sweat for 1 minute, later add the tomato and let it cook for 2 minutes until mushy
  • Add in the ginger garlic paste and mix well, let it cook for 30 sec
  • Add the red chilli powder and mix well, if you find the mix little dry add little water (1/4 cup) and cover the lid and cook for a minute
  • Add the chopped salmon into the mix give it a good stir and cook with a covered lid for 5-6 minutes
Serve hot with rice/roti


- Don't over stir the salmon cos they might break when cooked
- replace chillis with capsicum if you are not fond of a spicy version
- you need not add too much oil, since the fish itself releases oil
