Description
Wasabi Sauce is an exotic sauce made from the wasabi plant, grown mainly in the mountain valley regions of Japan. Wasabi is also called Japanese horseradish. It has a sharp and earthy taste, which is known to ‘hit the nose rather than the tongue’. That is, when you taste a drop of it, the flavour rises to the nose with a slight tingle or stinging sensation.
Wasabi sauce is available in powder or paste form – generally green in colour. Since wasabi grows only in some locations, the sauce is quite expensive.
