Wasabi-coated salmon with cucumber salad

Ingredients (serves 4)

    * 1 telegraph cucumber, halved lengthways, seeds scooped out, thinly sliced
    * 2 cups (160g) bean spouts, trimmed
    * 1/2 loosely packed cup coriander leaves
    * 1/2 loosely packed cup mint leaves
    * 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
    * 1 tsp fish sauce
    * 2 tbs sweet chilli sauce
    * 1 tbs lime juice, plus lime wedges to serve
    * 1/4 cup (60ml) peanut oil
    * 150g wasabi peas (see note), ground to fine powder in a food processor or spice grinder
    * 1/2 cup (75g) plain flour
    * 2 eggwhites, lightly frothed
    * 4 x 180g skinless salmon fillets, pin-boned

Method


   1.  Place cucumber, sprouts, herbs and onion in a bowl. Combine sauces, juice and 1 tbs oil in another bowl. Set both aside.
   2.  Mix ground peas with flour in a shallow bowl, and place eggwhite in another bowl. Season fish with salt, then dip in eggwhite, followed by pea mixture to coat well.
   3. Heat remaining 2 tbs oil in a large non-stick frypan over medium heat. Cook fish for 2-3 minutes each side until golden (if browning too quickly, transfer to a 180°C oven for 2-3 minutes to finish cooking). Toss salad with dressing, then serve with the fish and lime wedges.
