Quick Salmon Tikka & Naan

4 to 6 Prep time: 15 min Cook time: 15 min

High-quality protein doesn’t have to take a long time to prepare. This surprisingly simple but super flavorful salmon dish is one of my favorites for a busy weeknight. Wild-caught salmon is an excellent source of high-quality protein and omega-3 fatty acids, making this a great recipe to support lean muscle mass, cognition, and anti-inflammatory mechanisms all at once.

Combined with a warm grain-free naan, cool coconut yogurt, crisp cucumber, and refreshing mint this meal will spark all your tastebuds and leave you feeling satisfied. 

Wishing you health and happiness,

Quick Salmon Tikka & Naan



  • 1 lb wild salmon filet
  • 2 tablespoons tandoori seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt


  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil


Step 1

Pat salmon dry using paper towels. Cut into bite-size pieces and transfer to a large mixing bowl, along with the tandoori seasoning. Set aside while lining a baking tray with parchment paper and preheating your oven to 500°F (yes, that high!). If your oven has a fan, turn it on.

Step 2

While the oven is heating, make the naan. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until no lumps remain. The batter should look like pancake batter.

Step 3

Preheat a large nonstick pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, transfer ⅓ cup of batter onto the pan. Spread batter by tilting the pan around and cook for 2 minutes. Use a spatula to flip and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack while preparing the rest of the naans. You should get 6 in total.

Step 4

When the oven is hot, transfer the salmon to the prepared baking sheet and cook for 5 minutes or when golden on the outside.

Step 5

To serve, top naan with salmon, yogurt, cucumber, mint, and freshly ground pepper.
