Cole & Mason Wasabi Powder
Eat our Wasabi Powder with a soba noodle salad. Mix a few tablespoons of rice wine vinegar with half a teaspoon each of wasabi powder, soy sauce and sesame oil. Drizzle over soba noodles, with grilled mushrooms, grated carrot and cabbage.
Why not try giving pre-dinner nibbles a kick. Perk up your popcorn or peanuts by tossing them in a little salt and wasabi powder. Or mix a teaspoon into cream cheese to give smoked salmon blinis a little more bite.
When most people in the UK think of wasabi, they think of the bright green paste that comes in a little sachet with your sushi. Actually, those sachets are often just horseradish with a bit of green food colouring.
Real wasabi is related to English horseradish, but it's a different plant that's much harder to grow, making it rarer and more expensive. Ours comes from China, and is blended with horseradish and mustard to round out the taste.
