Recipe - Wasabi Salmon

After yesterdays failure I needed to get back to safe ground again. Something that I possibly couldn't screw up. Time to hit a safe card, Wasabi Salmon.

This works as a simple weeknight dinner but you could serve it at a dinner party too.

As always, freestyle the proportions of wasabi and mayo to suit you and your preferences.

Salmon fillets, skin on
Wasabi paste

Heat the oven to 225c.

In the meantime mix wasabi and mayonnaise until you got the right amount of kick. Season the salmon. Spread a thick layer of the mix on each salmon fillet.

Put the fillets in the oven until the wasabi/mayo mix starts to change colour with some brown/black spots. This normally takes about 10 minutes.

Serve with new potatoes, rice, noodles or whatever takes your fancy.



  1. Oh I love this! It looks wonderful.
    I am always looking for ways to dress salmon. I have this wasabi powder, I wonder if I could use it instead of paste.

  2. Ivy,

    Glad you liked it.

    I'd probably mix the wasabi powder with some water. That way you'd have a paste and I think it's easier to gauge how much to put in with the mayo.

    You'd probably get a nicer green colour to the mayo this way too than if used just the powder.

    I think powder is superior to ready made paste, but I'm too lazy at times. ;)
