  • 2 Salmon fillets (skin removed) figure 4 - 6 ounces per person
  • salt
  • pepper

Glaze:

  • 2 heaping tablespoons hoisin sauce - don't level
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon of fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced fresh ginger
  • 1 clove finely mined garlic
  • a pinch red pepper flakes

Wasabi cream:

  • 2 teaspoons wasabi powder mixed with a few drops water or 2 teaspoons wasabi paste
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to broil. Line baking sheet with foil.
  2. Mix glaze ingredients in a microwavable mixing bowl or cup.
  3. Mix wasabi cream ingredients together in small dish and set aside.
  4. Season the salmon with salt and pepper both sides. Place on baking sheet. With a spoon*, drizzle glaze onto the salmon and using a brush, cover the surface with glaze.
  5. Broil for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Take out of oven and gently turn over. Again, drizzle glaze onto the other side of salmon, brush glaze to cover.
  7. Return to broiler for approximately 4-5 minutes, depending on thickness of the fillets.
  8. Microwave remaining glaze about 30 seconds until hot and gooey.
  9. Place salmon on a bed of rice. Drizzle glaze over top and drizzle with wasabi cream. Serve with stir fried vegetables.

* Do not put brush directly into the glaze. Use a clean spoon because any leftover glaze will be added after the salmon has finished cooking.
