This recipe was quick and easy. Kind of different, but really tasty! My coating didn't stick that well, so next time I'd make sure to crush the potato chips (I just used regular kettle cooked ones) really small and to press into the mayo well. I will put a bit more wasabi powder in next time too, to make it a bit spicier.

Excellent recipe!!! The salmon was very moist and flavorful. Sprayed a foil-lined baking sheet with Pam. Used a 10 oz. bag of kettle chips, which were well crushed and pressed into the mayo, as suggested by another reader. We tripled the Wasabi powder, plused used Wasabi paste for added flavor. It was NOT spicy hot. The bake time was longer than 20 minutes. It reheated very well in the microwave at 50% power for a short time. The only thing lost in reheating was the crunchiness of the chips, but the moistness and flavor was still there. Definately a 5 star recipe.

this dish is good. i made a 3/4 lb. salmon steak, so i only used 1/4 cup mayo to about 3 tsp wasabi paste. i first used the wasabi powder and was completely disappointed by the flavor. i dumped that batch of mayo and started again, but only with the paste. much better. the powder does not taste good to me. i also added garlic to my mayo. salmon turned out good, but still not enough flavor. so i mixed up lemon juice with a tsp or so of the wasabi paste to drizzle over. that was awesome!!! i suggest that to everyone. it gave it the kick it was missing.
