5. Place salmon on cutting board and spread edamame mixture on fillet; roll up like a sushi roll. Wrapsalmon roll in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil. Refrigerate 30 min., allowing salmon to slightly harden.

6. Remove plastic wrap and aluminum foil from salmon fillet. Cut salmon into 7-oz. portions. Cut the nori sheets in half and wrap one half around each salmon portion (Should look like a large maki roll.)

7. Pan roast the salmon “maki” roll in a medium pan over medium-high heat for 4 min. on one side; turn and cook for 3 min. on other side. Place in oven and cook for 3 min. at 375°F.
