Japanese Fusion Guacamole


A variation on the classic Mexican dip using some ingredients common in Japan. I developed this recipe because i couldn't get cilantro. The wasabi gives it a nice unexpected kick.

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root

  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste

  1. Place the avocados, lime juice, onion, jalapeno pepper, shiso leaf, ginger, wasabi paste, white pepper, and hot sauce into a bowl.
