This one is a keeper! It was quick, easy and got rave reviews from my husband and our friends. The wasabi was great in the slaw. Next time I may add some lime to the dressing for a little zing. The dressing/glaze didn't seem to do much for the fish. Next time I'll probably add a little more brown sugar or some honey before glazing the salmon just to give it a little more flavor and color. Overall, great though!

I'm nuts too...

Well, well, well this one was a hard one to rate. It was an okay recipe with an okay outcome, BUT what I'm wondering is: if the salmon was marinated in the wasabi mixture would it have more of a "hot" taste. On the slaw the dressing was great, in fact my husband loved it, he said "it would be better without the seeds". For the slaw, I cheated and used "Pearson" oriental stir fry, which consists of a mixture of chopped Napa, Bok Choy, celery, waterchestnuts & carrots. It is found by the pre-packaged salads. Came out excellent. The fish on the other hand didn't have the hottness that I had hoped. It was yummy, but not as I expected. Like I said, marinating the fish may give it 5 stars, but recipe as is = barely a 4. Thanks.


"GREAT" Receipe for those who "LOVE" hot!!!! I just LOVE this receipe & it is easy so try it if you like "HOT"!!!! You'll have to take this receipe with a grain of salt!!! Just a fraize on words!!!
