Wasabi Cream Sauce

Recipe adapted from Steven Raichlen's BBQ USA

  • Yield: Makes about 1 cup

  • 1 tablespoon good-quality wasabi powder
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise (preferably Hellmann’s)
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce

Step 1: Place the wasabi in a nonreactive mixing bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of cold water and stir to form a thick paste. Let sit for 5 minutes to develop the flavor.

Step 2: Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, and soy sauce and whisk to mix. The mixture should be thick but pourable. If necessary, thin with a little more water. If not using immediately, cover and refrigerate. Place in a plastic squeeze bottle for serving.
