One-Sheet Pan Wasabi Furikake Salmon with Roasted Bok Choy
- 4 Salmon fillets
- 2 tbsp Mayonnaise
- 1-2 tsp Wasabi Paste adjust to taste
- 1 tbsp Soy Sauce Low Sodium
- 2 tsp Furikake
- Salt & Pepper to taste
For Roasted Bok Choy
- 4 heads Bok choy Halved Lengthwise
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil Extra Virgin
- Sesame Seeds for garnish
- Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Prepare the Wasabi Mayo: In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, wasabi paste, and soy sauce until well combined. Adjust the amount of wasabi paste according to how spicy you want it.
- Season the Salmon: Place the salmon fillets on one side of the prepared sheet pan. Season them with salt and pepper. Spread the wasabi mayo mixture over the top of each fillet, then sprinkle with furikake seasoning.
- Prepare the Bok Choy: Toss the bok choy halves with olive oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Arrange them around the salmon on the sheet pan, cut side down.
- Roast: Place the sheet pan in the oven and roast for about 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, and the bok choy is tender and has a bit of char.
- Garnish and Serve: Remove from the oven. If desired, sprinkle sesame seeds over the bok choy for an added touch. Serve the wasabi furikake salmon and roasted bok choy immediately.
- Wasabi Furikake: We love the kick of wasabi furikake for this dish but tip toe into finding the right amount of kick for you. If you can’t find furikake with wasabi, you can use regular furikake and add extra wasabi paste to the mayo mixture.
- Adjusting Wasabi Heat: Wasabi can be quite potent. Start with a smaller amount and add more to the mayo mixture according to your heat preference.
- Serving Suggestion: This dish pairs beautifully with steamed rice or a light salad to balance the bold flavors of the wasabi and furikake.
