For those who dont know what is it....well , Wasabi is a condiment traditionally served with raw fish (sushi and sashimi) and noodle (soba) dishes in Japan.
WHAT IS IT
The ground root-like rhizome pungently flavors many foods in Japanese cuisine and its bright green color adds color contrast, for which Japanese dishes are famous
In traditional Japanese cuisine, Wasabi is prepared by grating the fresh rhizome against a rough surface.
Some Japanese Sushi Chefs will only use a sharkskin grater. The sharkskin gives grated Wasabi a smooth, soft and aromatic finish.
Many believe that the Wasabi rhizome should be carefully peeled first before grating. It is recommended in either case to scrub the Wasabi rhizome with a soft brush before grating.
Good Fresh Wasabi and Wasabi paste does not just have add spicy hotness, and sweetness but also a gentle fragrance to assist the taste of fresh fish with soy sauce.
Many diners, however, prefer to mix the Wasabi paste with soy sauce, called "Wasabi-joyu," and use this as a dipping sauce for the raw fish, or mix the Wasabi directly into a bowl of noodles.
In any case, to much of it will make you cry..;) its very strong.....
