"This is some darn good salmon! And believe me it is easy too. This is also one of those recipes that you can have fun with. Season to your tastes, use more or less ingredients, make it your own. Whenever there is a summer BBQ this is what I make (because even I can't mess up on it)." — HEATHEBEL

wasabi paste, or to taste
1 (1 1/2 pound)
salt and pepper to taste
green bell pepper, sliced
onion, finely chopped
I have used this recipe so many times and it always turns out great for me. I like to get the big salmons at Cosco (about 4 pounds) and serve them at dinner parties. (you need to double the recipe for this) You can prepare it ahead of time, putting it in the foil and tossing it all back in the fridge until your guests arrive. Cook it when people arrive and keep it in the foil 'til it's time to eat. People say its great and make me give them the recipe. The wasabi doesn't taste hot. I've varied the recipe to change it to try and make it hot but it doesn't get hot no matter how much you add. At times I mix pepper colors for presentation so it looks nice. I also sprinkle a little fresh parsley on it after its done for presentation. Its delicious!!!!!! Also, I'd like to disagree with the suggestions to open up the foil and broil it, it seems like a good idea but each time I've tried it in the end I just don't think it is as good that way.
You have to like a creamy think topping to your fish. I didn't care for this. I think I was expecting more of a glaze, than spoonful of flavored mayo on top of fish. Not my favorite.
I made this for my wife on Mother's Day and it really was delicious. She's very critical about my cooking, but this one actually got some favorable comments. The recipe calls for 1 green bell pepper and 1 onion, but it was immediately apparent that this is twice as much of what is actually needed. I would also add those two items into the foil after five or so minutes of cooking so that they don't get so mushy.
I don't have a grill so I made this in the oven.
I followed Sandra's hints and added more wasabi etc.
The salmon was delicious. My husband who is not a
sea food fan enjoyed it.
Delicious!! I, too, added more wasabi paste to the mayo mixture to give the salmon a real kick. And after it cooked, the wasabi taste was not too overpowering at all. Since it's a bit cold here for grilling, I baked it in the oven wrapped in foil. Turned out perfectly - - can't wait to try it on the grill this spring!
Excellent! I did build on this recipe by using red pepper instead of green and added 1 tsp. of the wasabi, 1 tbs. honey and 1/4 tsp. Chinese Five Spice. I sliced the peppers and onion thinly and put half on the foil. Then cover the fish with the sauce place on top and add remaining peppers and onions then top it with remaining sauce. Double wrap with seams facing same direction. For a bit of color roll back the foil and place under broiler for a few minutes in the oven just until the onions turn a golden brown. Our family loved it except for the child that will not let fish touch her lips. A great company dish. Very easy.
Very good - the only reason I made it a 4 star was because there is too much sauce...my husband said he liked it, but too much sauce. Otherwise...very moist, excellent flavor - loved the wasabi!!
The combination of ingredients used to make the wasabi coating were really good - I added lime juice, though. The salmon turned out perfectly on the grill!
