WASABI PEA CRUSTED SALMON

WASABI PEA CRUSTED SALMON

 

1, 2-2 ½ lb. salmon filet, skin on

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

2 Tbs. mayonnaise

1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated

2 large cloves garlic, minced

1 cup wasabi peas

2 Tbs. olive oil

3 Tbs. butter

 

Cut salmon filets into 4 equal portions.  Season on both sides with salt and pepper. 

 

Combine mayonnaise, ginger, and garlic in a small bowl and spread over each piece of salmon on the flesh side only.

 

Place the wasabi peas in a food processor and pulse until a powder forms, but still leaving some small chunks for texture.  Spread the processed peas over the salmon, pressing into the mayo to adhere.

 

Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.  When pan is hot, place salmon filets flesh/wasabi crust side down in the oil.  Let cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes and flip over.  Cook for another 3 minutes uncovered and then cover and cook another 2-3 minutes until fish flakes easily by is still translucent and rosy colored on the inside.
