These Wasabi Glazed Salmon Power Salads have edamame and hard boiled eggs and my favorite sesame dressing but my ginger carrot dressing would also be great with it. The crunchy shiitake bacon mushrooms goes well with the Asian flavors in this big salad.

I also added in plenty of seasonal veggies, including Napa cabbage, radishes , which are rolling in right now, and shredded carrots. All of which they go so well with these other flavors.

The Wasabi Glazed Salmon is really easy to make and super flavorful. Just combine maple syrup, tamari and wasabi in a ziplock bag and add the salmon. If you’ve never bought wasabi powder before, it is sold in small jars in the Japanese and/or Asian section of good grocery stores and specialty food stores. I love the way it tastes with fish but it’s also great in mashed potatoes!

The salmon only needs to marinate for 30 minutes. Then broil it in the upper third of the oven, until it is browned on top (Note: the maple causes it to darken quickly, so keep an eye on it!)

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 8 ounces salmon, skin removed
  • 10 cups thinly sliced Napa cabbage

Notes

Tip* To hard boil eggs: Place eggs in the bottom of a small saucepan. Cover generously with cold water. Set over high heat and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle boil and cook for 9 minutes. Remove from the heat and run cold water into the pot continuously for 3 minutes. Drain and peel the eggs.
