Sesame Salmon with Wasabi Sauce

  • One hefty salmon steak
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • Oil for sauteing
  • Soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. wasabi powder
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 1 Tbsp. heavy cream
  • Salt to taste
  • Slivered red bell pepper (for garnish)
  • Slivered green onion (scallion, for garnish)

Make wasabi sauce: mix wasabi powder and water to make a paste, let stand for 10 minutes. Mix in heavy cream and season to taste with salt. Watch it in tasting, this stuff is *hot*.

Coat the fish with sesame seeds and saute in oil on both sides, in a skillet, until it flakes (i.e., is just done).

Season to taste with soy sauce. Transfer to a serving plate and top with the wasabi sauce, sprinkle with a garnish of finely slivered red bell pepper and green onion, and serve.
