One of my favorite snacks is wasabi peas. These toasted green peas have a bit of a kick and satisfying crunch. Plus, I don’t feel too guilty enjoying them by the handful. Hey, they’re veggies!

I have always wondered if I could take my love for wasabi peas to the next level and incorporate them into a recipe. That’s when the idea for this quick and easy dish was born!  I crushed the wasabi peas and turned them into a coating for salmon fillets. With a drizzle of olive oil and a few minutes in the oven, dinner is served.  I plated it along side a seaweed salad I purchased from the sushi bar at the grocery store.  This is an effortless and satisfying meal I will serve again and again!
