Wasabi Flavored Recipes

It’s hard to believe that ten years ago most of us had never even heard of wasabi.  Maybe we even piled it on our sushi before we knew what it was (guilty as charged). Now the hot green stuff, typically sold in powder or paste is a sushi staple.  Wasabi has come a long way from a sushi condiment, and it’s unique flavor can now be found in many foods, like soy nuts, potato chips and rice cakes.

Wasabi is Japanese horseradish.   It is actually very difficult to get fresh wasabi here in the United States.  Gold’s, already well known for their prepared horseradish, has brought the convenience and flavor of wasabi in a sauce that we can use to top our sushi and flavor tons of other dishes.  It does have some mayo mixed in, but a little goes a long way and you get the added benefit of including more horseradish in your diet, which if you have been paying attention is extremely healthy (click here for my article on the health benefits of horseradish).


Scallion Salmon Gefilte Fish with Wasabi Sauce

First, I want to share a pan-Asian twist on Jewish tradition by serving it with gefilte fish.  Not any old gefilte fish though, I made a baked salmon gefilte fish that I filled with scallions and a bit of wasabi sauce.  I served it alongside Gold’s wasabi sauce that I made even hotter by mixing a hot pepper and some parsley for texture and color.


Asian Salad with Wasabi Dressing

I also made a summer time Asian Salad and it is really a very simple combination. I love the mixture of textures between the lettuce, cabbage, bean sprouts and straw mushrooms.   I basically added the wasabi sauce for some spice and creaminess to the dressing and it was absolutely perfect.

  1. I love this take on gefilte fish!

  2. I love all the Gold’s products. In fact, will use the Wasabi sauce tonight for my grilled salmon (I mix it with plain yogurt). You just need a little of this to get a lot of flavor.

  3. Wasabi is simply underappreciated!

  4. That salad looks really amazing – so crisp and colorful!

  5. That gefilte fish and horseradish dip has to happen in my kitchen. Looks amazing!

  6. These recipes have to happen in my kitchen! YUM!

  7. I’m a huge fan of Gold’s wasabi sauce. I use it in my sushi salad, and I always put it out as a topping for gefilte fish (along with chrein). My guests always ask what it is because they love it so much.
