Ready for some DIY? You can make your own tandoori seasoning with the spices that you already have on hand. Start with equal parts ground ginger, ground coriander, cumin, turmeric, paprika, salt, and cayenne. Adjust the flavors to your liking. For even more warmth, try a dash of nutmeg, cloves, or cinnamon.
Salmon, chicken and pork all have 0g carbs (well, a trace) so it won't affect the carb count of the meal.
I bet chicken would work really well in this recipe!
The "Instructions" clarify that they're for 4 people because some of our recipes specify baking dish size, oven temp and/or time. In many cases, if you make more or less, you will need to choose the appropriate size dish to bake it in. All of the recipes have the option to set the number of servings above the list of ingredients. If you're cooking for one person and need 1 dinner + 1 lunch, you will want to set that to 2 servings.

Just one comment, in the method it refers to arugula (which i had to Google as it is called rocket in the UK) but in the ingredients it says Romaine lettuce. I bought Romaine so that's what I used. Rocket might have been too much flavour?
The sauce is amazing, next time I will making this with saour cream.
I am so glad you enjoyed this one!!
The avocado adds fat and a bit of carbs to the meal along with a different texture. You might try pecans or goat cheese.
