  1. In 1-cup glass measure or small jar, combine wasabi with water; let stand 10 minutes. Add vinegar, oil, brown sugar and sesame seeds. (This can be made ahead to allow flavors to blend.)
  2. Reserve 2 to 3 tablespoons dressing. Toss remaining dressing with cabbage, radishes, cucumber and sunflower kernels.
  3. Grill or broil salmon 8 to 10 minutes per inch of thickness or until fish flakes easily with a fork, brushing with reserved dressing during last 2 minutes of cooking. Serve salmon with slaw.

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!!!
