Though it may not be the first association we make, Indian cuisine has a deep, rich seafood history. India has 7,000 miles of coastline and it has been feeding people since the dawn of time. In this dish, you’ll take part in the tradition, searing salmon fillets and serving them with a traditionally-spiced Indian stew and a sweet, sour and savory chutney. In the stew, you’ll be using fresh, beautiful cranberry beans, a kind of shelling bean. Their vivid color dissipates during the cooking process, but their creamy, hearty flavor is there to stay.
