Pan Fried Turmeric & Paprika Salmon


This week, let’s continue with my love for turmeric and paprika. I’ve always like turmeric and paprika and the reason why I’ve been utilizing them more than usual is because my sis and dad both bought an extra bottle each due to miscommunication. Hehe. Since turmeric can reduce cancer risk and paprika is full of anti-oxidant, there are no harm in adding them in my regular cooking. Tsk, I’ll be trying out turmeric powder with my dog too.

I told you before I got tired of the usual pan fry salmon. That’s how I came up with this steamed salmon with mushrooms recipe. And now for this version, I decided to add turmeric and paprika to the salmon and pan fry it. Just a little twist to an otherwise simple dish. Hope you like it.

      Hi Medeja, I’m a fan of salmon too but I can’t take too often because of the smell. Haha

    I am not too keen on salmon either because of the fishy smell. I have not given turmeric powder to Chase yet, trying to find ways to hide it in his food. However I have given him coconut oil and he loves it.

      Hi Dawn, hi-5… yeah the fishy smell.

      I usually put turmeric powder in Chester’s steamed veggies. Ohh I’ve heard about other pet owners giving coconut oil to their dogs. I will check it out to see what are the benefits. Currently I’m feeding him yogurt and ACV to fight his stubborn yeast infection.
