Creamy Salmon Tikka

You will need your spice collection for this! Really simple to make but delicious, I used a value brand of salmon fillets & yoghurt which worked perfectly fine.

Serve with rice &/or salad.


Serves 2 Approx £1.40 per person

Prep time 5 minutes Marinading time 2 hours Cooking time 15 minutes

Level 🍴


  • 200ml plain yoghurt (low fat is fine)
  • 1 tsp each of ground coriander, ground cumin, ground ginger
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried mint
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or I used garlic powder & added it to the the ground spices
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 skinless salmon fillets, basics/value is fine even if they are a bit broken up.

Place the yoghurt into a jug & add the spices, mint & garlic. Mix together well.

Put the salmon into a shallow dish & pour over the yoghurt mix making sure it is well covered.

Cover the dish with cling film & place in the fridge for 2 hours (or longer if possible).




Pre-heat the oven to 180Fan/200C/Gas6. Remove the salmon from the fridge.

Put a sheet of foil on to a baking tray carefully remove the salmon from the marinade & place on the foil. Bring the edges of the foil up to loosely cover the salmon. Cook in the oven for 15 minutes.

Serve with pilau rice &/or salad.
