Salmon stars in Asian-inspired dinner Fish: Wasabi powder adds fiery touch to fillets in this easy, low-fat meal.

Fast & Fresh

May 20, 1998|By Rita Calvert | Rita Calvert,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

This fiery salmon recipe is bold in flavor and low in fat and can be thrown together in minutes.

Wasabi powder (which makes that hot green paste served with sushi) creates the flame, but prepared horseradish can be substituted. Serve ramen or soba noodles, made from buckwheat, around the salmon and top with steamed broccoli florets and julienne carrot strips.

A bought coconut dessert goes well with this Asian-influenced dinner.
