I am trying to introduce myself to new flavours and I have never has wasabi and since I am also supposed to eat salmon twice a week I thought this recipe from Australian Good Food mini cookbook looked a good place to start.

We regularly enjoy wasabi with our salmon--- the addition of birdseye chilis, rice wine vinegar & cucs take this to a whole new level! Wonderful! I had to use regular cucumbers as I couldn't source the Lebanese variety, but I don't think it made any noticeable difference. Also, skipped the poppy seeds, and I may add some freshly grated ginger, next time, just for fun. Thank you, I'mPat, for a great salmon recipe that I've added to my favorites.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rub olive oil and then wasabi over both sides of the salmon.
  2. Use a teaspoon to remove seeds from the cucumber and then cut diagonally into large pices and place in a bowl and add chilli, vinegar, poppy seeds, sugar and salt and season with pepper and toss to combine and stand for 1 to 2 minutes until salt and sugar dissolve.
  3. Meanwhile preheat grill/broiler on high and cook salmon, turning halfway, for 5 to 6 minutes or until just cooked through.
  4. Serve with cucumber salad and steamed rice.
