Salmon with Coriander Chutney Yogurt Sauce

   I bought all sorts of stuff at Spice of India when I catered for the book club.  That means I still have stuff left over.  I am trying to find new ways to use the items I bought.  Like the coriander chutney.  This bright green, spicy sauce is so fresh and delicious.  I would put it on anything as is.  However, in the spirit of transforming store bought ingredients, and to tone down the verdant heat, this sauce was created.  Creation is also based on the fact that I had eaten several heavy meals in a row and wanted something light.
