A nice simple sauce that's great on salmon. (It only has 3 ingredients to!)

Instead of wasabi powder, I used prepared wasabi paste and mixed it with the mayo. This is absolutely delicious with seared Tuna steaks. Adds just the right amount of creaminess and spiciness. Delish! Read More

This is a great beginning to a recipe, but the wasabi powder to water ratio is off, and should roughly be reversed. To make a proper wasabi paste from scratch you need much more wasabi paste than water. the recipe calls for 1:2 it should be closer to 2:1. Then, after allowing the paste to set, add the mayonnaise and then, according to your desire add additional water. You simply cannot make wasabi past with 2 parts water to 1 part wasabi. Read More

Perfect! I haven't been able to make my famous wasabi pasta salad ever since Trader Joe's discontinued their wasabi mayo. Now I can finally make my salad again! Thank you so so much. Read More

Do NOT use Miracle Whip in this recipe. I did and it is way too sweet. I added horseradish & dijon mustard to fix the problem but next time I'll be sure I have real mayo in the house. Read More

I thought this was a great recipe! I served it as a dip with sweet potato fries. Most of my guests were timid to try the unlikely combination but soon after the first bite were requesting the recipe. Strongly reccommend! Read More

Yum! I used wasabi paste (1 tablespoon) with 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise and it was perfect! I had it on both sides of a thin bun with a piece of Maple Salmon (from AR) inbetween -- and it was DELICIOUS! We will definitely be serving this with A LOT of dishes from now on. Even the kids loved their hotdogs dipped in it! Read More

Delicious. I also used the wasabi paste and eyeballed everything to taste and It came out really good. Also added a splash of shoyu (soy sauce). Next time Im going to try adding garlic powder or chopped garlic. Very good with furukaki encrusted salmon and salmon patties. ***UPDATE*** tried it with garlic powder and it was awesome. No measuring was done, just to your own taste. So I used wasabi paste, soy sauce, mayo and garlic powder. Mix and enjoy! Yumm Read More

Loved the recipe! I did change it though, I doubled the recipe and used half mayo and half sour cream. And both the mayo and the sour cream were "light." I served it with seared salmon and my husband gobbled it down! Read More
