  • 4 (6 oz) Salmon Steaks
  • 1 pound haricot vert, trimmed
  • 2 handfuls watercress
  • 2 lemons, juice and zest
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste
  • 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more as needed
  • 2 dashes rice wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives, for serving


  • Step 1

    Brush the salmon with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

    Meanwhile, heat a grill pan over medium high heat. Add salmon and cook for 3-4 minutes per side. Flip the fish and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until you reach your desired doneness.

  • Step 4

    Whisk together the 1/2 cup of olive oil, rice wine vinegar, wasabi paste and lemon juice and zest. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Step 5

    Serve the salmon topped with minced chives, a pile of steam beans, a handful of watercress and a drizzle of the wasabi vinaigrette.
