Grilled Japanese steak salad

Wasabi and pickled ginger add lots of punch to this Asian-inspired main. It's wonderfully filling for appetites big or small.


  • 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce

  • 2 thick steaks, such as strip loin or rib-eye

  • 2-Jan small head iceberg lettuce

  • 41643 English cucumber

  • 1 mango, peeled

  • 1 carrot, sliced

  • 4 small radish, sliced

  • 1/2 cup snipped chives

  • 2 tbsp chopped pickled ginger, or 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger

  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 tbsp dark sesame oil

  • 2 tsp wasabi powder


  • Oil grill and heat barbecue to medium-high. Pour 3 tbsp (45 mL) teriyaki into a shallow dish. Add steaks. Turn to coat. Tear lettuce into pieces and place in a large bowl. Cut cucumber in half lengthwise. Thinly slice. Slice mango from stone. Cut into strips. Add to lettuce along with carrots, radishes, chives and pickled ginger, if using. In a small bowl, whisk lime juice with both oils, wasabi, remaining teriyaki and fresh ginger, if using. Add salt if needed.

  • Barbecue steaks, uncovered, until they give a slight resistance when pressed, 5 to 6 min per side for a steak 1 in. (2.5 cm) thick, if you like them medium-rare. Remove to a cutting board. Cover with foil. Let stand 5 min. Thinly slice. Toss half the dressing with salad. Serve salad topped with steak slices. Drizzle with remaining dressing.
