Tandoori Salmon

12:12 PMM Khan

You know how it is. It's one of those weeks, where the days blur together. You start with one busy day, the busy day then turns into a busy week and here we are at the end of week and end of the year.

My weekly things to-do-list rolled over from last week and most likely rolling into next week. Laundry piled up, and just ran out of my last clean underwear. Bikini bottoms for myself "wedgie galore."

Thankfully take-out options are no longer unhealthy. If you want to eat wholesome food, you still can. But eating out 3 or even 4 days in a row, and you get home sick. Or at least we do. I am always looking for recipes, that really takes 15 minutes from prep-to table. I hope to create a new series on this blog for 15-minute meal ideas.

 So set your watches, and let's see how we do with my go-to Tandoori Salmon recipe.
