This recipe was quick and easy. Kind of different but really tasty! My coating didn't stick that well so next time I'd make sure to crush the potato chips (I just used regular kettle cooked ones) really small and to press into the mayo well. I will put a bit more wasabi powder in next time too to make it a bit spicier. Read More

The combination of Wasabi and Mayonnaise does not go together well particularly when baked. The topping of crushed potato chips did not help. I was reluctant to give this one a try. Now that I have I'll pay more attention to the inner voice that says "Nah you don't want to do this " and save myself some disappointment. Read More

Excellent recipe!!! The salmon was very moist and flavorful. Sprayed a foil-lined baking sheet with Pam. Used a 10 oz. bag of kettle chips which were well crushed and pressed into the mayo as suggested by another reader. We tripled the Wasabi powder plused used Wasabi paste for added flavor. It was NOT spicy hot. The bake time was longer than 20 minutes. It reheated very well in the microwave at 50% power for a short time. The only thing lost in reheating was the crunchiness of the chips but the moistness and flavor was still there. Definately a 5 star recipe. Read More

this dish is good. i made a 3/4 lb. salmon steak so i only used 1/4 cup mayo to about 3 tsp wasabi paste. i first used the wasabi powder and was completely disappointed by the flavor. i dumped that batch of mayo and started again but only with the paste. much better. the powder does not taste good to me. i also added garlic to my mayo. salmon turned out good but still not enough flavor. so i mixed up lemon juice with a tsp or so of the wasabi paste to drizzle over. that was awesome!!! i suggest that to everyone. it gave it the kick it was missing.

5 star with modifications: Uniformly rubbed wasabi paste on the raw salmon. Mixed 1tsp minced jar garlic & ginger in with mayo, added splash of soy sauce & 1tsp dry basil. Sprinkled plain dry bread crumbs on top of fish instead of potato chips. Last 3-5 minutes broiled. Served with zucchini & tomato pie (many recipes on this site). Read More

This is a REALLY easy recipe and I make it with a few modifications!!! First you lay the slab of salmon in a baking pan then pour YOSHIDA sauce (found at Costco) or any teriyaki sauce till it fills the bottom of the pan. Then spread the wasabi-mayo over the entire slab of salmon. Then sprinkle the Japanese seaweed/sesame seasoning "Furikake" over it. Then bake! I think this variation will have a more Asian kick to it... and also more flavor cuz of the Teriyaki sauce! Read More

Trader Joe's sells Wasabi Mayo which worked fabulously. Makes this delicious and easy recipe even easier! I don't think it makes too much difference which potato chips you use; they all add a nice crunch to the dish. Read More

This was quite possibly ine of the best pieces of salmon I ever had. Like some of the other cooks I added an extra T. of wasabi powder. I didn't have chips so I used panko bread crumbs topped with a little melted butter! It was great! I also like my salmon a little on the rare side so I only did 15 minutes and then under the broiler till the panko browned. Thanks so much for the recipe! Read More
