This is a popular Bengali dish . Bengal is an eastern state in India and boasts a very unique and rich cuisine quite different from the usual Indian food you might come across in general Indian Restaurants in America. This dish is originally made with Hilsa (a very popular fish among bengalees) but Salmon goes well with it too.
1 lb of fresh Salmon fillet
4 tsp of Mustard Oil
6-8 Green chillies
1 tsp of mustard seeds
1 lb Yogurt (preferably regular ones .. not the non fat ones)
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste
Ground the mustard seeds and 2 green chillies to paste
In a container beat the yogurt along with the ground mustard and add salt and sugar to taste
Cut the Salmon fillet into medium sized rectangular chunks
Smear the fish with a little salt and the mustard oil.
sprinkle the remaining green chillies from the top
pour the yogurt mixture over the fish just enough to cover them completely
Keep it for 1 hour to marinate
After an hour put the tray in a microwave and heat it on high for 8 mins
