Asian cuisine can be broken down into several tiny regional styles. This dish is Indonesian inspired with lots of traditional ingredients. One of those ingredients is Sambal. Sambal is an Asian condiment typically made from a variety of chili peppers and secondary ingredients such as, garlic, ginger, shallot, scallion, sugar, lime juice, and rice vinegar or other vinegars. This chili paste pairs great with the sweet and flaky pan seared salmon. We also came up with a delicious twist on your everyday mashed potatoes by adding some wasabi to them. You might be saying wasabi and potatoes? But take our word for it – they are delicious!
