Salmon Steaks With Wasabi Mayonnaise
This is just a very simple yet delicious way to serve salmon, it takes no time at all to prepare and is very healthy. I served ours over stir fried vegetables with wasabi mashed potato ans it was excellent. I use sichuan pepper when I salt and pepper my fish but we love that and it is our preference regular would be fine too. This recipe would also work well with tuna but remember to cook less as tuna needs to be cooked quite rare to remain tender and moist.

400g Salmon steaks (I used salmon fillet with the skin on)
1 Tablespoon oil
Salt and pepper (I use sichuan pepper, our preference)
1 Teaspoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Teaspoon wasabi paste (or to taste, I use way more, we love it)
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise


1. Preheat oven to 200c degrees. I don’t bother with this I prefer to cook mine in a hot pan as I like to crisp up the skin on the salmon, so take your pick. In a pan depending on thickness of fillets I cook for 4-6 Min’s a side.

2. Cut salmon into 2 steaks.

3. Rub salmon steak with oil, and season with salt and pepper.

4. Place skin side down on a baking sheet and cook in pre-heated oven about 10 minutes or until done to your liking-I like mine quite rare.

5. Meanwhile, mix the remaining ingredients together for a sauce and serve alongside the cooked salmon steak.

Serve salmon with stir fried vegetables and top with wasabi mayonnaise.
