Grilled Salmon With Raita for Taste & Create

Taste & Create logo

For this month's Taste & Create, I was paired with Shilpa from Passion + Love + Patience = Good Food. Shilpa is not one to write loads of waffle on her blog, she gets straight down to the nitty gritty of posting lovely, spicy, interesting recipes. I found it easy to choose something tasty and healthy, but after browsing her blog, I knew that she would probably have quite a hard time choosing something from my sugar laden pages.

Grilled Salmon with Raita 3549

Grilled salmon with raita is a light, fresh tasting dish. The raita is healthy and delicious, bursting with spicy, crunchy flavours. I grilled the salmon with a little honey, olive oil, some chilli flakes, lemon juice and parsley. I followed the recipe exactly for the raita.

Thanks for the recipe Shilpa, and thanks to Nicole from For the Love of Food, for all the work she does in co-ordinating this fun event.

Here is the recipe for the raita:

Raita
Adapted from Passion + Love + Patience = Good Food

1 small pot natural yogurt
1/2 cucumber chopped into small pieces
1 small carrot grated
1 tomato chopped into small pieces
Salt
1 small green chilli, chopped finely

Mix all the ingredients for the raita in a bowl.

Serve with hot grilled salmon.

Nic, we love salmon here and that looks really, really good. I love the sound of the raita and the salmon together. Thanks for a great recipe!

DE-lish! You know I'm all about the sweets too. However, I will say that anytime we actually grill fish - it's salmon; so now you've given us a new combo to try. I've got to balance these sweets with SOMEthing! :)

i'm not a fan of salmon, but you must've done something right because that looks mighty appetizing to me... :)

GREAT one Nic...the fish looks delicious & must have paired really well with the raita. You can even add some fresh chopped mint leaves into the raita & chill it for a while to let the flvaours marry. Very refreshing!
