Source: Everyday Food, November 2011


  • 1 1/2 cups frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest, plus 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 6 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3/4 pound center-cut salmon fillet, skin removed
  • 5 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger (from a 3-inch piece)
  • 1/4 head napa cabbage, cored and thinly sliced (4 cups)
  • 1/2 head red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced (4 cups)
  • 1 small bunch scallions, thinly sliced (3/4 cup)


  1. Cook edamame according to package instructions; drain. Heat broiler, with rack in top position. In a small bowl, stir together lime zest, honey, and 2 teaspoons soy sauce. Brush a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet with 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil. Add salmon; brush with honey glaze. Broil until salmon is browned and opaque throughout, 6 minutes. Let cool slightly. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, ginger, 4 teaspoons soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon sesame oil. Add cabbages, edamame, and scallions and toss to coat. Flake salmon into salad and toss very gently to combine.

Cook's Notes

You can use sliced blanched green beans in place of the edamame.

    Delicious flavors excellent dish! Loved the crunch of Napa and Red cabbages. Ginger adds superb flavor. Couldn't be easier to make. Added to household favorites list.

    I thought it was okay, my spouse gave it a 3/10 and tossed the recipe. I think the dressing lacked flavor and depth, I would add wasabi and honey to round it out. The salmon was very good.
