Sesame Salmon with Wasabi Mayo

Since it is salmon on the menu, how about some fish humor?

Here we go:

“To catch a Swedish fish you use a gummy worm.”


Perhaps you want to use The World’s Largest Gummy Worm?

Now, seriously, let’s talk about this salmon dinner.

Simple, elegant and flavorful. The salmon, with hints of sesame, is truly fine with the spicy wasabi mayonnaise. Splash some lemon juice over and serve with rice. Perfect.
