Wasabi Crusted Salmon
Wasabi is the Japanese version of horseradish. It’s an Asian root vegetable that is sold in paste and powdered form. The powdered form is mixed with water to form a thick paste. The green wasabi served with sushi is usually white wasabi powder that is mixed with colorants and mustard. Fresh wasabi root can be found in some Asian stores.
