Wasabi Pea Salmon
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!
1/2 cup wasabi peas
4 teaspoons olive oil
4 salmon filets (4 oz. each)
Crush the wasabi peas in a food processor or with a mortar and pestle. Drizzle each salmon filet with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Divide the crushed wasabi peas among the four pieces of salmon and press lightly. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes.
