Pure Wasabi Powder

Namida is Japanese for ‘tear.’ It refers to this pure wasabi's intense heat. Wasabi is cultivated by masters who tend it under challenging conditions. It grows only near cold, clear streams in mountain valleys. Sushi chefs put it between fish and rice in nigiri.

Details

Pure wasabi powder is a simple way for sushi lovers to experience true wasabi without hunting down the elusive, fresh rhizome. Most wasabi powders and pastes are actually mixtures of ground mustard seed, horseradish and green coloring. The delicately floral, and nutty flavor of real wasabi is easily destroyed by heat, so use this pure wasabi powder in cold dishes and sauces. Wasabi pairs particularly well with fish, avocado, ginger, and soy sauce.To fully release its flavor, it should be added to a liquid and left for about 10 minutes. Wasabi powder is best stored in the refrigerator or freezer if it will not be used for some time.
