Happy Monday everyone! Thank you to all of you who entered my RoadId Giveaway for the blog’s 1st Birthday! The winner (using random.org) is …. Emily P! Congrats Emily! Be on the lookout for an email from me about getting the gift card to you!
A while back my friend Chris (you know, the personal trainer from this TRX Suspension Training post) sent me some Trader Joes Wasabi Almonds since I live in a deprived part of Virginia without a TJs! They are AWESOME! I now detest unflavored almonds after experiencing these guys.
Shortly after finishing off that bag I was in Baltimore for the SCAN Symposium and ate this fabulous Wasabi Crusted Salmon at a restaurant one night. It was great! Then, as chance would have it as I was waiting for some take out I wandered through the world market grocery store in town and spotted a bag of wasabi powder – which I hastily snatched up. Long story short, the DIY wasabi almonds were lackluster compared to the TJs version – and thus not on the blog. However, I did find a recipe for Wasabi Salmon which I believe is worth sharing.
Wasabi Salmon – From MyRecipes.com. The only change I made was doubling the wasabi powder as most of the comments indicated there was not a strong enough wasabi flavor. It was delicious! 🙂 I made it a second time and actually coated the salmon with the wasabi powder to make it more “wasabi crusted” and that turned out even better (in my opinion). Truth be told, I searched through several other recipes 1st but this one only required 5 ingredients so it ended up the winner. That’s just how things go in my kitchen!
Sound off. Wasabi: Love it? Hate it? Only in moderation? On average, what is the number of ingredients that turns you off from trying out a new recipe?
