Created May 28, 2012

Ingredients

  • 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

Steps

  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with fork.
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    Transfer salmon to individual serving plates; top with wasabi sauce. Sprinkle with onions.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Toss some mixed spring greens with oil and rice vinegar for a fresh and easy salad to serve alongside the salmon.
  • tip 2
    For a very mild wasabi sauce, add just 1/4 teaspoon of wasabi powder.
  • tip 3
    If you’re not a fan of cilantro, substitute Italian (flat-leaf) parsley.
