Spiced Up Salmon
Spicy, with a tang of vinegar, this highly seasoned vindaloo sauce is a delicious and distinctive seasoning on salmon, changing up that weeknight dinner.
Indian spices and foods are my go-to comfort food, but sometimes I need something quick, easy, healthy and versatile. Enter, this omega rich salmon with a fiery sauce that is brushed on along with veggies of choice. I used onions and peppers but BE BRAVE and add zucchini, mushrooms, cauliflower and more.
Store bought vindaloo sauce is the key to this quick weeknight meal and I am very particular about the quality of jarred products I use. The Masala Mama brand gives you all the flavor of a slow cooked sauce using only extra virgin olive oil, clean ingredients, no added sugars, fresh ground spices and is one of the only jarred Indian brands I will use.
Prefer milder Indian flavors? I also love to make this with Tikka Masala sauce which is less spicy but just as flavorful.
So BE BRAVE and change out the flavors on your dinner table with this quick, easy, healthy Indian-inspired zesty meal.

* I personally love the heat and tang of Masala Mama Vindaloo sauce. It is made with fresh ingredients, no artificial flavorings and true extra virgin olive oil. If the Vindaloo is too spicy for you, you can use their Tikka Masala sauce instead or you can choose to substitute with your favorite brand of an Indian simmer sauce but remember that the flavors and excellence of the sauce will dictate the quality of the dish. Many Masala Mama sauces are available at Oil & Vinegar Greenville
