WASABI: Wasabi Paste
Wasabi is Japanese horseradish. It is most commonly used as a green paste as a condiment for sashimi and sushi.
- 2½ teaspoons water
- 4 teaspoons wasabi powder
- Turn the bowl upside down while you prepare the sushi. The wasabi paste will stick to the bottom of the bowl while upside down. This will preserve the flavour of the wasabi until it is ready to be used.
- Put wasabi powder in a small bowl. Add a teaspoon of water to the wasabi powder and mix together using a chopstick to make a thick paste. Continue adding very small amounts of water until you reach the desired consistency.
