Wasabi Salmon with Quinoa, Green Beans, Mushrooms, and Spinach

Salmon… mmm. I haven’t made any sort of fish dish it seems like for such a long time (maybe since my parchment paper fish entry..ignore my very very bad photography! Can’t believe I am taking you guys back to something like this ;) Hehe). So I decided to make salmon as one of my meals. Plus Dr. Oz keeps badgering me about eating fish a few times a week! You have to do what the Dr. tells you right?

I found this cool twist on salmon using a wasabi flavor base. I always love some wasabi with my sushi so I knew this had to be delish. This is a pretty easy recipe with a small number of ingredients. Easy to do on an already tiring day.

Recipe from MyRecipes for Wasabi Salmon:


  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi powder (dried Japanese horseradish)
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick) $
  • Cooking spray


  1. Combine soy sauce, wasabi, ginger, and sesame oil in a large zip-top plastic bag; add fish. Seal and marinate at room temperature 5 minutes, turning bag occasionally to coat. Remove fish from the bag, reserving marinade.
  2. While fish marinates, heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add fish and marinade; cook 3 minutes. Turn fish over. Reduce heat to medium; cook 8 minutes or until fish is done.

I made some quinoa and used the leftover marinade as a sauce base to saute the vegetables in. I had spinach, green beans, and mushrooms. I sauteed the vegetables and used just a bit of the marinade to coat the veggies (can be very salty if you use too much since it was soy sauce based). I also put a bit of chicken stock to water it down so that the veggies were covered in sauce but also so that the flavors wouldn’t be toooooo intense on the veggies.

Okay, I hope you enjoy! :) To all my new followers, thank you for your follow! Yay! ^_^
