It’s almost end of summers, but it is still very hot in California….So instead of taking a stroll at the beach, we decided to stay home and cook something together….I had a Salmon steak lying in my fridge , so we thought to grill it…But then who wants to step out in the heat..So it was pan seared and we had it with an apple and pecan salad and stir fried beans…The fish was delicious with nice and flavorful Indian spices and the yogurt dip added just the right touch….Do give it a try…
