Sesame Ginger Salmon over Crunchy Ramen Slaw

I am so excited to share with you my 2015 entry into the Saucy Mama Recipe Contest!

I present to you, my contribution to the seafood category: Sesame Ginger Salmon over Crunchy Ramen Slaw!


I am super excited to be among the 25 bloggers that are taking part in this contest.  It’s a qualifying event for the World Food Championships, that is being held in Kissimmee, Florida, this November.

Each blogger who was selected to participate, was given the choice of which Saucy Mama Sauces  they would like to work with.  Oh, my! Where to begin?  After much contemplation, here is the line up of which sauces I chose:

Saucy Mama

We had to make a recipe that fit in to one of these categories:  Burger, Sandwich, Bacon, Seafood, Pasta or Fresh Recipe.  My mind was swimming with saucy ideas, and I couldn’t WAIT to get started.

I have a love affair with all things ginger, so I knew I wanted to use the Pacific Rim Ginger Dressing.  Once I decided on what I would be making, I decided I just HAD to throw in the Miso Orange Sesame, as well.

They went so well together with the Asian style slaw and salmon I created.

I made a marinade for the salmon using the Miso Orange Sesame Dressing, sweetened up with some brown sugar.

Once the salmon was grilled, I glazed it with this deliciousness – made with Pacific Rim Ginger Dressing, and some fresh orange zest and juice.

The glazed salmon would have been perfect as it was, but I had to kick it up a notch.  I LOVE colorful food, don’t you?

I made this AH-Mazing crunchy ramen slaw, and dressed it with BOTH dressings.  The slaw has mandarin oranges, and really brought out that subtle flavor of orange to the salmon.  It was a match made in heaven.

Saucy Mama Heaven.

  1. Such a beautiful looking dish!.
    I’m always amazed when I see such a daunting list of ingredients become something wonderful.
    Followed you on twitter and retweeted too.

  2. i am a bit confused, this is certainly not a cost friendly meal, for the dressings alone it’s nearly 18 dollars on top of the salmon we’re talking near 30 dollars as amazing as this sounds i’m wondering what type of seasoning, sauce or spice i can actually use to mimick this awesome sounding meal. So sorry i generally dont leave remarks of any type negative but this is so costly i couldnt imagine this being a weeknight meal for children in any household on a budget is there another type of fish maybe that would be firm enough to sub for salmon maybe?

    1. Hi, Mariea. This is a recipe that I developed for that particular sauce company. If you wanted to mimic this and get similar results, use an Asian Ginger dressing that is more cost effective for you. Add the orange zest and juice to get that orange taste. I have used something similar to this on shrimp, also. I find that purchasing salmon at places like Costco or Sam’s is way more economical. I hope this helps!
