How to Cook Pan Sauteed Wasabi Crusted Salmon

Spice up your plate tonight with Pan Sauteed Wasabi Crusted Salmon!

Wasabi Crusted Salmon - CookingWithKimberly.comTonight, I’m cooking salmon, but I wanted to pan sauté it with a bit of a new flare.

Pan Sauteed Wasabi Crusted Salmon:

I saw wasabi peas in my pantry and decided to grind them or pulverize them in the food processor to use as the “dredging flour” to kick it up a hundred notches!

One of my favorite combinations is when I have salmon sushi with wasabi…and I like A LOT of wasabi with mine. So this is a spin-off of that flavor combination.

  4. On medium heat, heat olive oil and butter in a large frying pan.
  5. When butter is fragrant, arrange lightly dredged salmon in pan and sprinkle with freshly cracked black pepper, and allow to cook for about 5 min, or until golden brown on bottom.
    • * Tip: Lightly shake pan back and forth to ensure fish doesn’t stick after about 3 min of cooking. Don’t move fish around more than you have to…It will break apart.
