Tandoori Spiced Salmon with kale and black rice


It is a bitter sweet moment, writing this post today. Today is the last post of the Power Foods Blogging Group. I learned a lot on this journey of 38 power foods with the blog group. The stories from each one of the bloggers kept me entertained and the facts about power foods kept me amazed. There was so much about these foods that I did not know and there still is so much to learn. The blogging group helped me stop and take notice and ask the food, “So what are YOU going to help me with?”

As we wind up this journey and get ready to embark on another one, I do have one more power food recipe for you.  It is the Indian version of pan roasted, Tandoori Spiced Salmon With Black Rice and it is a no fuss recipe.   Just to make life easier for my friends who keep complaining that they have to go with a huge spice list to buy everything they need to make my dishes, I have for once used a ready mix of Tandoori spices. I can see you grinning ear to ear.  Yes,  it is really as simple as that. And as for cooking black rice, you can use this method or follow your own method.

For well researched health benefits of Salmon read the article on WHF.
