May the sweet wasabi prince kiss you on the cheek and lay horseradish-goodness under your pillow.

Couldn't live up to my name if I didn't have a couple of recipes for you

Asparagus Wasabi Tempura

16 asparagus spears
3/4 c unbleached white flour
2 tb cornstarch
1 ts salt
1 ts sugar
1 ts baking powder
1 ts ground ginger
1 ts wasabi powder to taste (to 2 tsp)
1/4 c water
1/2 c beer; (any kind will do)
2 c canola or corn oil; (approximately)

Break tough ends off asparagus and discard end pieces.
In a bowl, mix together the flour, cornstarch, salt, sugar, baking powder,
ginger, and wasabi.
Add the water and beer to the flour mixture and whisk slowly until the batter is smooth.
Transfer the batter into a pan at least 8 inches wide.
In a saucepan or skillet at least 8 inches in diameter, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Test the oil by dropping in 1/2 teaspoon of the batter. If it immediately bubbles and fizzes, the oil is ready.
Dip one asparagus spear into the batter, then drop it into the oil, being careful not to splash the oil too much. Add 7 or more batter-dipped asparagus spears, and let them fry for 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove them to paper towels with a large slotted spoon.
Dip and fry the remaining asparagus spears and blot them on the paper towels. Serve the tempura immediately.

Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

Serves 4-6
5 large Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into sixths
3 quarts water
½ cup heavy cream (or substitute milk)
1 stick butter
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons wasabi powder or paste

Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water until tender.
Mash the potatoes or whip in a mixer.
In a small saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients and heat until the butter is melted. Slowly blend this mixture into the potatoes.
If you like, stir in some bacon bits or fresh herbs for more flavor.

Good Luck!

heya wasabi woman, that 's pretty much how i make my wasabi mashed taters, but i use a little of the boiling water instead of cream or milk. i think it makes the mashed a little lighter, and it reduces fat and calories.

Now I cannot find the tubed one, only the powdered one and I like it better. How do you guys use it.

AND I have used it in mashed potatoes as a side when we had the ahi tuna. GREAT subtle heat and flavor.
I have salmon in the freezer, this will be my dinner tonight. I will make mashed potatoes with buttermilk, fresh chives, roasted garlic. THanks kitchekelf....
