Expert Tips

If you can't find wasabi mayonnaise, mix 1 tablespoon horseradish into 1/2 cup plain mayonnaise. Instead of crackers, you may want to try this Asian-style salmon on toasted baguette slices.

For a dill version, mix 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill weed with ½ cup plain mayonnaise to use in place of the wasabi mayo.
