Sriracha Salmon

How To Prepare Sriracha Salmon

🧂 First, mix together the Panko, chives, cashews, sesame seeds, garlic powder, salt, pepper, olive and sesame oil.

🌶 Secondly, whisk together mayo, sriracha, miso, 1 tsp tamari and honey.

🍣 Then, pat dry salmon real well, add some Korean BBQ seasoning to taste and most of the sriracha honey, but reserve some for the vinaigrette.

🌟 Add all of the Panko cashew mixture atop the salmon. Then, press real well.

🔥 Bake at 415F for 15 minutes for it to be pink and flaky, you can do 18 minutes if you want it more well done.

❤️ Add the rest of Tamari and rice vinegar to the leftover sriracha honey.

🍃 Massage the vinegar into the arugula (I did like 4-5 cups).

🍋 Lastly, serve the salmon atop the arugula and serve with lemon.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can use any of your favorite greens instead of arugula, such as spinach.
  2. If you don’t like spice too much, you can adjust the amount of sriracha to your liking.
  3. You can do chicken, or any protein of your choice instead of salmon.
  4. If you want to do a vegetarian version, you can use tofu and add vegetables.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Make sure you massage the vinegar into the arugula gently, so the dressing is well incorporated.
