Jamie Oliver's Salmon Tikka

I have a fangirl crush on Jamie Oliver. I was ravenous by the time I got home from work today, cooked this in 20 MINUTES, and it was among the best things that I've ever made. All thanks to Jamie Oliver.

It's super simple. Start by heating up some naan in the oven on low heat, then begin making lemon yogurt dressing. Dice up 1/2 a cucumber and reserve half of that. Add the other half to 4 Tbsp plain yogurt and stir in salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice. 

Salmon: cut into 1 cm thick strips, rub with tikka sauce (I just used Trader Joe's Masala Simmer Sauce), and pan fry on each side for 2-3 minutes. Remove naan from oven and lay on plate, cover with salmon, drizzle on yogurt dressing, then throw on some chopped cucumber and cilantro garnish. In my case, I had no cilantro but arugula was just fine. Now feast.
