Tandoori Salmon with Spiced Cauliflower Rice

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

This recipe is keto-friendly and easy to prepare.

The original recipe riced the raw cauliflower and then cooked it in a frying pan. That method didn't cook the cauliflower properly.

For this version of the recipe, I steam the cauliflower before it's riced. That works so much better.


  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled and minced
  • 1 and a 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp tomato puree
  • 4 tsp natural yogurt
  • 1 cauliflower, leaves and stalk removed
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or butter
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander roughly chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4/356F
  2. Steam the cauliflower until there's still some 'bite' and texture to it
  3. Place the salmon fillets on a baking tray
  4. Place the garam masala, ginger, garlic, chilli powder, 1 tsp of the turmeric, tomato puree and yoghurt into a medium bowl and mix well
  5. Spread the tandoori mixture all over the salmon fillets and place them in the oven
  6. Cook the salmon for 10-12 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through
  7. Meanwhile, blitz the steamed cauliflower in a blender to rice it. Or just mash it with a fork
  8. Heat the oil or butter in a frying pan for 30 seconds
  9. Add the cumin, the remaining 1 tsp of turmeric and cook for a few seconds
  10. Add the cauliflower to the frying pan over medium heat for 3 minutes or until cooked through
  11. Season to taste
  12. Finish by adding the chopped coriander to the pan and stir it into the cauliflower mix
  13. Serve the cauliflower rice topped with a salmon fillet
