Wasabi may be better known as the green spicy stuff that comes with sushi, but it can be used in so many more ways. In this recipe, the horseradish paste is blended into a mixture of lime and sour cream, creating a sauce for salmon that’s equal parts tangy, zesty, and exhilarating. The fish is served with sesame green beans and scallion rice on the side, resulting in a meal that combines Asian-style flavors with classic and simple techniques.
