How to Make Salmon Tikka


  • 1For the marinade, whisk the yogurt, cilantro, tomato paste, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, brown sugar, coriander, cumin, turmeric, cardamom, chili powder, salt and pepper together until well blended.
  • 2For the skewers: Thread the salmon pieces and peppers onto the skewers, using 5 pieces of salmon for each skewer and 4 each of the peppers, alternating them so the peppers are between the pices of salmon. Place them in a dish that will accommodate them in a single layer and pour over the marinade. Turn the skewers a few times, making sure they are well coated, cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 1 hour.
  • 3Preheat an indoor grill or a barbecue grill to medium-high heat. Oil the grill, remove the skewers from the marinade and sprinkle them with salt. Place on the grill and cook 5 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. Skewers are done when the fish is firm and slightly charred.
