The first time i tasted wasabi was last year in london and i instantly fell in love with it . Being french i grew up with mustard as a dipping sauce for grilled meats or as a base for dish like ” rabbit stew in mustard sauce” , i when i tried it in a sushi place i couldnt get the idea of my head to cook a grilled salmon marinated in wasabi and once i tasted it i was really surprised that the heat of the wasabi became sweet once cooked, a delish . I served the dish with an avocado rice and a little bit of sauce made from just avocado and wasabi , easy but really tasty and fresh.
*2 salmon fillets ( around 150 grs each)
*2 tbsp of wasabi paste
*1 cup of basmati rice
*2 cup of vegetable stock
*2 tbsp of sesame oil
1.In a pot add the rice with the vegetable stock, bring to boil then reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid and slowly cook for about 10-15 min depending of the quality of the rice.
2.Switch on the grill function of your oven .Meanwhile mix the wasabi with the sesame oil to obtain a paste that you rub on the salmon .
3.Place the salmon on a baking tray line with greaseproof paper and cook under the grill for about 8 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish fillets.
4. Cut the avocados in half , remove the seed and spoon out the flesh . Dice 3 half that you will add to the rice.
5.To make the sauce , just blend the half avocado that we kept earlier with 1 tsp of wasabi and a little bit of water, season with salt and pepper.
6. Once the rice is cooked stir it with a fork then add the diced avocado and season if needed
7.Once the salmon is cooked serve with a generous portion of rice and a little dip of the sauce.
