Pack spicy flavor into your salmon with wasabi peas—you can find them in the supermarket’s ethnic food aisle. Loaded with healthy fats, this 30-minute meal is a quick recipe for a weeknight dinner.

Suggested Serving Size

4 oz salmon


  • 1/3 cup wasabi peas
  • 4 salmon fillets (4 oz each)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Lightly coat a baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a food processor or blender, chop wasabi peas until they are finely ground but not a powdery consistency. Spread the chopped wasabi peas on a plate.
  3. Rinse the salmon filets with water and press the filets, skin side up, into the wasabi peas. Arrange the filets, skin side down, onto baking pan. Drizzle fillets with olive oil. Bake salmon about 12 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from pan. Drizzle with lime juice.
