Macher Jhol with Salmon

Macher Jhol refers to fish curry in Bengali and there are countless different ways fish curry can be prepared. What I am sharing today is the simplest version of a Bengali fish curry recipe that includes just a handful of very basic ingredients. Believe it or not, the curry calls for just 1 spice and that’s nigella seeds. Typically, Bengali fish curries are prepared with fresh lake water fish, which is not easily available everywhere. But you can prepare the exact same dish with salmon and it’s delicious. Not to mention this salmon curry is really easy and quick!

Creamy Salmon Piccata

About 4 years back, I had prepared a similar dish but I had panko crusted the salmon and baked it in the oven. It was delicious. We love the tangy piccata sauce and I make it quite often with seafood or pasta. I never added cream and kept it light with just chicken broth. However, when I included cream in the sauce, it made the sauce so silky to the palate that we ended up licking the plate clean. No kidding! This Creamy Salmon Piccata takes less than 15 minutes to prepare, which is my book is a winning recipe.

Soba Noodles With Salmon

Soba Noodles with Salmon in Ginger Sauce, one of those super quick meals that get ready in less than 15 minutes of cooking time. I have quite a few soba noodles recipes up on the blog. But, it’s never enough for me. The nutty buckwheat flavor, the gorgeous hew of brown and that firm texture makes soba noodles my absolute favorite of all. I prepare soba noodles quite often and always keep it simple. Tossed together with some greens or proteins in a zingy sauce.

Chili And Lime Baked Salmon

The plan was to try new flavors, cook more often and share more often. Instead, I am looking for shortcut easy meals like this Chili and Lime Baked Salmon. Ever since we arrived here, we have been falling under the weather, pretty much back-to-back. Cold, cough and nasty virus, all leading to sleepless nights and a not-so-happy toddler! Avyan gave up food for almost a week and even ice cream didn’t excite him. However, he didn’t mind gulping those fruit flavored medicines. And as soon as he started to recover, I caught the bug. I just can’t stop coughing, stuffy…

Panko Crusted Salmon in Piccata Sauce with Nigella Garlic Flatbread

This was undoubtedly the most relaxing holiday we ever had. Every year, during this time, we either visit families back in India or explore a new place. We both love to travel, which is why every time an opportunity strikes, we pack our bags and hit the road. This time was different. After a stressful last few months at work, my husband needed this break and so we made no plans. We kept most of our days blank and let things happened randomly. There was no rush or chaos. We slept a lot, hanged out with friends and checked some…

Grilled Salmon With Corn And Heirloom Tomato Salad

Few weeks back, I joined the madness and shared my first instavideo after a long photo shoot. Once done, we sat for lunch and gobbled up what we prepared together (yes, it was one of those weekends). After a while, I checked my instafeed and turns out the video reached close to 700+ likes in like an hour (woot!) and a comment that said I reached the popular page. Wow, that’s something! Of course, I was excited and thrilled but what followed after that was horrible. There were a series of nasty, rude and mean comments. I just don’t understand…
