Baked Salmon with Wasabi Sauce

Sometimes you just need a good, healthy dinner. That’s when I turn to salmon.


Baked Salmon with Wasabi Sauce


4 salmon fillets
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon grated gingerroot
2 to 3 teaspoons wasabi powder or paste
3 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup sliced green onions


Heat oven to 400°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Place salmon, skin side down, on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper; drizzle with oil.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with fork.

Meanwhile, in food processor, place mayonnaise, cilantro, garlic, gingerroot, wasabi powder, lime juice, sugar and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cover; process with on-and-off pulses until cilantro is finely chopped.

Transfer salmon to individual serving plates; top with wasabi sauce. Sprinkle with onions.
