Select Qty: Dinner for


When I came up with this dish, wasabi peas were just becoming a popular snack food in America. As someone who loves spicy foods and wasabi, they were a favorite of mine from beginning. Salmon gets a bad rap as a pedestrian piece of fish, but if you cook it gently and season it well, it’s a very noble protein. There is no denying it can use a punch of flavor, which is why the wasabi peas make the perfect crust for this delicate fish.
