This was an absolute hit with my room mate and I we love Salmon, we love Wasabi, and this was just the recipe I was looking for!

The salmon in this recipe was average. We used fresh salmon steaks so the fish was tasty. The slaw reminded me a lot of those oriental cabbage salads made with coleslaw mix, crushed ramen noodl...

The wasabi glaze on the salmon was delicious! Had a great flavor but not TOO spicey for those who are worried about the wasabi. I highly reccomend this recipe!

The salmon I could take or leave. The slaw was awesome and I've made it separately many times since.

We weren't crazy about this. The wasabi sauce was pleasant on the salmon - it mellowed a little during the grilling - but we didn't like it on the 'slaw.' This was nice for a change, but I doubt...

WOW!!! The dressing was SOOOOO HOT!!! Luckily, I tasted it before I put it on the salmon and salad. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to serve to my family.
