I am a salmon lover. This is a great recipe for a slightly exotic flavor of Indian inspiration with a maple twist. The flavor is exceptional, delicious, and unique. Orange zest may be added for an extra flavor twist.

What an amazing recipe! I made it exactly as written, except that I grilled it outdoors instead of cooking in a pan. The flavor was outstanding. The cardamom really takes this to another level, so don't leave it out! It's a pricey spice, but well worth it! I will be making this frequently, especially for guests because it will definitely impress. Next time I will try it with the orange zest, as suggested. Thank you for the great recipe!

I loved the flavor combination. Will keep in the rotation for weeknight meals. I like to buy a large tray of salmon at Costco and then freeze it in smaller portions - this is a great way to use the frozen/thawed leftovers.

I’m always looking for new ways to fix salmon. This was a nice change from what seems like the same old boring seasonings. The spice combination complimented the salmon very well. My only problem was keeping the salmon from burning. Thank goodness hubby is a sport when it comes to eating charred food. I reduced the heat to a lower setting, but the longer cook time still resulted in a slightly burnt coating. I think this would be fantastic cooked on a grill.
