Indian-Spiced Salmon

I found the recipe for Indian-Spiced Salmon Fillets and just used all the spices in my approximately one pound of flaked salmon meat. I was concerned that it might be a bit heavy on the spices because the recipe called for four 6 oz. fillets, but I erred on the side of excess, and was rewarded for my efforts!

This spice combo would work well with other meats and tofu as well.




  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ~ 1lb. flaked salmon or salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil



Mix all spices together and stir into flaked salmon, or pat all over flesh sides of fillets. Heat olive oil in a skillet and add salmon, cooking just until done.

Serve with Indian Greens and Indian Rice.

In addition, Fair Shares and its members have been great marketers for our products.  As a (very) small business, we are unable to advertise or market our products, so we have to rely on word of mouth.  Many of our customers are, were, or know Fair Shares members who have recommended our products.

Del Carmen has also benefitted from valuable ideas for use of existing products and suggestions in product development from the Fair Shares community.  I go to them for feedback, knowing I will get good, reliable and useful information.
