    Tandoori Salmon Tacos with Spicy Lime-Pickled Radish and Onion

    For this cross-cultural take on tacos, sockeye salmon is marinated with yogurt and a fragrant but mild tandoori-style spice full of the warm flavours of cumin, coriander, nutmeg, and cardamom. After grilling, omega-3-rich salmon is enclosed in a warm corn tortilla and topped with spicy Mexican-style radishes and red onion pickled with lime juice and jalapenos for a kick of heat.

    Toast your spices

    Toasting whole spices will give you superior fragrance and flavour. If you’re new to this process, try it with some whole coriander and whole cumin. Toast a small amount of each separately in a hot pan until seeds begin to pop and smell fragrant. Remove from heat and allow seeds to cool slightly, then grind using a spice grinder or clean coffee grinder dedicated to this purpose. After grinding, measure out the amount required for the recipe and save the rest.
