for the sauce:

  • 1 teaspoon real wasabi powder
  • 2 teaspoon Gluten-Free tamari soy sauce
  • 2 ½ tbsp. sriracha or less, to taste
  • 2 large or 3 small green onions, chopped fine
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon juice from a jar of capers

to assemble:

  • 1 lb Fresh salmon, cut into 1 inch cubes, pin bones and skin removed
  • 1-2 large cucumbers, cut into circles
  • Capers

Make it Dairy Free & Paleo: naturally Dairy Free; for Paleo substitute coconut aminos for the soy sauce, and use a mayonnaise made with olive or avocado oil


    • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    • Mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a medium sized bowl.
    • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat, and place the cubes of salmon on the sheet about 1 inch apart. Top each salmon cube with a large dollop of the sauce. Bake at 400 degrees for 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for at least 5 minutes.
    • Spread the cucumber rounds out on a large dish or serving tray. Using a small spatula or fish spatula, transfer one salmon cube to each cucumber round. Top each salmon cube with two capers, and serve.


    These are a huge crowd pleaser - and so pretty!
