I love Indian food and I love salmon, but this combination seemed kinda weird at first. However, it smelled fantastic while it was marinating. I only had one mid-sized fresh salmon steak (I was cooking for only myself) but left the marinade as is. I supposed if I was making the full recipe I would double or add more marinade. This fish was awesome! It wasn't spicy (I held back on the cayenne and I should of added more). I always eat my salmon with lemon, and this tasted amazing on its own. I will definitely be making this one on a regular basis.

I did not think flavor went well with salmon. I marinaded salmon overnight(as the recipe said)and add more yogurt to mixture. I prepared two fillets with this recipe, and after I ate the first fillet, I poured honey glaze over the second one to see if it would give salmon more flavor, but it still did not work. The baste was too watery during the cooking process, and I had to pour some juice out the pan halfway through cooking salmons. Instead of garlic cloves, I substituted garlic powder, everything else was the same. Overall, I was not satisfied with dish.

I wish I could give this recipe six stars. I would seriously pay for this in a restaurant--it's that good. Great with fruited rice pilaf from this site.

We loved this! My husband is an Indian chef. I made this for dinner one night and he really enjoyed it! (Which is saying a lot, since he's not a huge fan of fish). Even the kids ate it...but they're used to the spicy stuff. I can't imagine eating Salmon any other way after trying this recipe.

I had already stuck some salmon in a bag with some ginger and garlic with a little olive oil when I came across this recipe. I whipped it up and added it to the bag. The flavor of this fish was just wonderful. Not too strong, just even taste and goodness. I will definately try it again.

This turned out really hot, and I'm not usually a fan of very spicy foods, but in this case it was a fresh, short lived burn, which was cooled by the moist fish and yogurt. I'm trying to get more fish into our diet, and this is a great way to add variety to our menu because it really tastes different than typical fish recipes.

I love this recipe! It was so easy to make and so good to eat. The combination of spices really complimented the salmon. I've shared this recipe with lots of friends and even the kids asked for seconds.

I loved this dish! I was skeptical about the potential heat becasue of the cayenne pepper and made my 1, 4 and 6 year olds an alternative. It turned out to only be a slight kick, so the kids will definately be in on the dish next time.
