Recipe: Wasabi Potatoes with Salmon

The wasabi adds a kick to instant potatoes, while the salmon is a perfect protein source.

1 1/2 cups instant potato flakes

1 1/2 cups water

1 6-ounce salmon pouch

2 teaspoons wasabi powder (check the Asian section of your grocery store)

At Home

Pack potato flakes and wasabi powder in a zip-top bag


In Camp

Bring water to a simmer. Add the potato-wasabi mix and stir until smooth. Remove from heat, add salmon, and serve. Tip: Skip the salt–it brings out the wasabi's bitterness and dampens its spice.
