  1. Mix together the cayenne, turmeric, and salt in a bowl. Add the salmon to the bowl and toss to coat. Allow to sit 15 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. While the oil is heating, sprinkle the cornstarch over the salmon and again toss to coat.
  3. Cook the salmon in the heated oil until golden brown, about 1 minute per side.


  • Cook's Note
  • Vary the heat and seasoning level according to taste; you can use paprika rather than cayenne for a milder version. I use a full teaspoon of salt.

I'm not a fish lover, especially if it's dry, grilled fish. And i was disappointed that there was no tikka masala in this recipe.....until my first bite. This recipe has changed me into a salmo...

Wow, I'm not sure who thought this needed more spice, but there is A LOT of it!!! I like the basic idea it was a nifty way to prepare salmon. If I make this again, which I probably will, I will ...

Excellent! I made this for my husband and we both ate more than our fair share. I didn't need to change anything!

These were so simple and so delicious. Such a clever idea for finger food. Definitely will make this again.
