I have nothing bad to say about this recipe. I make it frequently, sometimes for guests, and even my salmon-hating husband likes it. For those complaining about the tartness of the yogurt, try using non-fat plain greek yogurt with the amount of lemon juice stated in the recipe. Yum!!

Yogurt sauce flavored with lemon, cumin and cilantro tops this Indian-inspired grilled salmon.

Great weeknight dinner option. Absolutely loved the cous cous with the salmon and the sauce. My salmon steaks were thinner, so they overcooked a little under the broiler. Also, the sauce was way to tangy with the yogurt. Next time I would go with < than half what the recipe calls for...otherwise fantastic dinner option. Delicious!! Oh, and you could even substitute the fresh cilantro with the prepared cilantro paste in the grocers produce department, might add more cilantro flavor.
We have a TON of frozen salmon, so I'm always on the hunt for recipes. This one did not disappoint! My 9 year old step-daughter, while a very adventurous eater, was a bit nervous to try the apricot cous cous. But she loved it! All the ingredients come together very easily, look beautiful and taste delicious.
I used fat free yogurt and the sauce was still packed w/flavor.
I probably used twice as many cashews, which seemed to be the perfect amount.
Will definitely make this again :)
Though the sauce for the salmon was not my favorite combination of flavors, the rest of my family loved it and the cous cous was delicious!
Some friends come for dinner on the weekend so I looked for some nice recipe I could prepare. I found this salmon recipe and it sounded interesting so I've prepared it yesterday - to test - and it's just delicious. I'm sure my friends will love it too.
