More Pantry Must Haves: Wasabi Powder

Posted by Nads on December 29, 2011

I’m always picking up new and different items to experiment with.  Once in a while I hit the jackpot with a new ingredient that manages to transform everyday ingredients and inspires me to create a whole new set of recipes.  These ingredients take up a permanent spot in my pantry and become a staple in some of my best dishes.  I have chosen a select few to share with you and I will be featuring them from time to time.  A couple of weeks back I wrote about my roasted nut oils.  Here is another one of my favorites.  One of my more recent discoveries is Japanese Wasabi powder.  I found this at my local Asian supermarket, T and T

Wasabi powder, also known as Japanese horseradish powder, can most commonly be found served with sushi at Japanese restaurants.  The powder is mixed with water to form a paste, usually served alongside pickled ginger.   Its’ spicy flavor comes from horseradish, so it is a different heat than that of the typical red pepper spice.  I use the powder on many different items; sprinkled on raw beet slices;  on sliced fennel and orange salads, as a rub for fish and chicken, its even great on popcorn and nuts.  It is fabulous on salmon or bass; rub into the fish as a base and then sprinkle generously with sesame seeds before broiling.  Wow!

Here, I have mixed it with some extra virgin olive oil to form a bit of a sauce or marinade.  You can use sesame oil instead, to add an Asian twist.

Here I have added black sesame seeds,  lemon juice and smoked salts so I can use it as a finishing sauce.  Wasabi powder has a multitude of applications – use it anywhere you would use regular hot pepper for a different twist.  Try it out and send me some of your ideas so we can share with all of our readers.
