Cooking: Tandoori Salmon

My tandoori obsession continues =]
Ingredients: Salmon Steak skin on. Tandoori paste. Cornflour. Oil. <--I'm not kidding, that is seriously all you need.
Method: Don't think it takes a genius to figure out the steps.

  1. Cut salmon steak into bite size pieces (keep in mind it will shrink a little bit when you cook it)
  2. Scoop a teaspoon of tandoori paste and mix, you only need enough to coat the pieces. About 1-2tsp per steak. (don't add too much as paste is normally quite salty)
  3. Place 1tbsp(per steak) of cornflour on a little dish. 
  4. Heat oil in pan.
  5. Dip the SKIN of the salmon into the cornflour (light coating) and place into the pan skin side DOWN.
  6. Repeat with all pieces, use your hands, it's way faster.
  7. Once skin is crisp turn and cook all the other sides. 
Note: Salmon will be cooked all the way through as it is very hard to control when your pieces of salmon are that small. (I personally don't think it'll taste very nice rare in the middle with tandoori on the outside).

Serve with rice.
