Bourbon Salmon over Ginger Broccoli Slaw with Wasabi Peas and Peanuts May 6, 2012

Jamie says: I have no idea why, but I got the sudden craving for wasabi peas when I was at the grocery store yesterday. Maybe there was a wasabi pea billboard or bus wrap or commercial on the radio. (Just kidding.) I added the box to my cart, figuring I would come up with something good for them…

I also was reminded of the bourbon I had, so I thought that Bourbon Salmon could be the main part of this meal…

And I bought lots of produce, like these onions, from the farmers’ market, so they were going  in, too…

And so, that’s how I created tonight’s dinner- Bourbon Salmon over Ginger Broccoli Slaw with Wasabi Peas and Peanuts.

It was tasty and unique. If I had chopsticks, those would have been fun. The wasabi peas and peanuts added a nice crunch and bold flavor, and the apple cider vinegar added a little tang.
