  •  Lightly marinate salmon with oil, salt, cumin, turmeric, curry powder, lemon juice, and fresh chopped dill. Leave it for 15 minutes to rest in the fridge.
  •  Heat the pan on high, add a splash of oil.
  •  Coat the salmon darne with flour and place on a grill pan. Grill it on the pan for 3 to 4 minutes on both sides or until cook.
  • Leave it on the side to rest while we prepare the sauce.


  • Heat a pan with oil, once oil is smoking hot, add mustard seeds and fennel seeds.
  • Add chopped onions, stir well then add ginger, garlic, and turmeric into the pan. Mix well and fry it for about 5 minutes, until onions turn brown in color.
  • Add the rest of the ground spices; cumin, curry, and chili. Quickly mix and fry for 30 seconds then add chopped tomato and mix well.
  • Add salt. Mix it well to make smooth then pour water to make it saucier. Leave it to boil for about 7 minutes while stirring it from time to time while boiling.
  • Add natural yogurt. Stir well to combine with sauce. Once sauce has a smooth consistency, add pre-cooked salmon darne into sauce.
  • Cook salmon in sauce for 4 minutes or until well cooked in the middle.
  • Sprinkle some chopped coriander and dill over the salmon curry.  Salmon curry is ready to eat with boiled rice, Pulau rice, potato, and roti.

NOTE: Take extra care while eating as the salmon contains bones. You can also use salmon fillets or diced salmon, that will cook faster.
