My husband and I wanted to come up with a zippy sauce to use with a variety of foods - raw veggies, deep-fried calamari, fish cakes, etc., etc. This is a staple!

Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and mayonnaise. Mix in the wasabi powder, jalapeno pepper, vinegar and salt. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes to let the flavors develop. If you want to add more wasabi, add a little bit, and then refrigerate for about 5 minutes. The wasabi will get hotter upon sitting.

Just the perfect amount of kick without being too hot. Served this with "My Crab Cakes" at a party and everyone loved it. I could put this sauce on just about anything. I am thinking about trying it with the "Zucchini 'Crab' Cakes". Good stuff. Thanks BahaTheCat! Read More

This was OK. It saved our dinner (Fat Tuesday Salmon) but I won't be making either recipe again. Read More

I like to call this green heat. It had just the right amount of heat for me and tasted good on cucumber and celery. Looking forward to using it on other foods. Read More

This was AWESOME. I live in a fairly limited place so I used wasabi paste and cut it into half a tablespoon but it still turned out excellent. I actually used it as a spread on shrimp po'boys and the flavor amazing. I will be making this again for everything haha Read More

I had trouble finding wasabi powder where I live so I used Wasabi paste. I added about 1 teaspoon but it needed more. Next time I'll increase the amount. This was a huge hit with raw vegetables and with pita chips. Read More
