  1. This is very yummy and I love the flavors, however being from Middle Eastern descent myself, this is not really Middle Eastern, but more like Indian in its flavors. In India, the Garam Masala spice is a staple in most foods, and they eat a lot of sweet potatoes. In Middle Eastern foods we do use lemon, garlic, olive oil and allspice, coriander, etc. as well. We don’t eat much sweet potatoes, and we would probably serve this fish with some hummus on the side. I love the flavors though, and the couscous salad is a great accompaniment, thank you for this lovely recipe:)

  2. This salmon looks fabulous! I can’t wait to try it, Sandy! xo

  3. Isn’t it great to get recipes from our daughters?! This salmon recipe sounds delish!

  4. Yum!!! Always such wonderful sounding recipes. We’ve had rain, rain, rain, so haven’t ventured much outdoors. :(
