The taste of wasabi is indescribable. It’s like someone punched you in the face and then your brain starts seeping out of your eyes, nose and ears! 🙂 You want to jump up and scream, and you feel like you are going to explode, but the taste passes all too soon and then you just want to have more! I’ve loved wasabi from the first moment I tried it.
So when KayKat of Cooking from A to Z, announced wasabi as this month’s chosen theme for the Think Spice event, I immediately started my search for wasabi in Chennai. I finally did find a tube of the paste. I’ve had fresh Wasabi several times, and it doesn’t compare to the paste, but, in a pinch, it’s quite good.
Deviled Eggs with Wasabi
4 Eggs, hard boiled
3 tbsp Mayonnaise
1 1/2 tbsp Wasabi paste
1 tbsp Mustard (I used French Mustard)
3 tbsp Sesame Seeds, toasted
Salt, to taste
Scoop the yolks out and put them in a bowl with the wasabi, mayo and mustard. Mix to combine, making a thick paste. Add salt as needed.
Garnish with roasted sesame seeds.
For the Chennai folks: S&B Wasabi is available at Maison de Gourmet.
