I read with some amusement in today's L.A. Times food section that Chef Kerry Simon will be presenting his signature Tandoori Salmon at the newly opened Simon L.A. at the Sofitel. I first experienced Andre Guerrero's superb rendtion at Linq some five years ago and continue to where it appears nightly at his four year old Max Restaurant in Sherman Oaks. I guess everything old is new again.
In fact, it is one of my 2-3 favorite dishes at Max, and has always been a benchmark for me as to will I have the salmon, or do I want something else tonight. Cannot imagine any dish at the Sofitel, tandoori salmon or otherwise, being modestly priced like Andre's either!
Humorously enough, also, based on Andre's dish, I now cook salmon at home with an Indian-based sauce from Trader Joe's that makes a superb dish at very modest cost.
All India Cafe in Pasadena sometimes has tandoori fresh salmon as a special. Delicious and very reasonably priced.
