Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Mix wasabi with water to form a paste. Let it rest for 20 minutes. Place all ingredients except salmon, butter in a small bowl and combine with your hands to make a moist mixture.
  3. Put several tablespoons of water in a baking sheet to prevent sticking (you want a film of water in the pan) and lay the fillets on it. Pat mixture on top of each fillet to about 1/4 inch thickness. Dot with the butter and bake for 6-7 minutes. Center of fish should be slightly undercooked.
  4. Servie with Orange Anaheim Pepper Sauce (recipe on file here) or salsa flavored with oranges for a lighter version).
