- 1 cup 240 ml mayonnaise
- ½ tablespoon ½ tablespoon wasabi paste
- Making your own wasabi mayonnaise is very simple. Mix wasabi paste and mayonnaise and it's ready. Start with ½ tablespoon wasabi paste to a cup of mayonnaise and increase the amount until you are satisfied with the heat and taste.
- Heat and taste will vary from brand to brand. Put some on your finger and taste your wasabi paste to determine how hot it is.
- Keep in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.
Most wasabi pastes in the grocery store will contain very little true wasabi, or namida, as it is also called. The premixed paste usually consists of horseradish and food coloring. It’s better to buy real wasabi powder and make your own paste by mixing together water and powder in equal amounts.
