Wasabi is a root vegetable
that is grated into a green paste. Wasabi is a condiment traditionally
used to garnish raw fish (sushi and sashimi) and noodle (soba) dishes in
Japan. In supermarkets, wasabi is widely available as a paste or in powder
form. Wasabi powder has to be mixed with water to become a paste.Wasabi
has a strong, hot flavour which dissipates within a few seconds and leaves
no burning aftertaste in one's mouth (I donít like it much).
