A key ingredient in many traditional Japanese dishes (perhaps most famously many styles of sushi), wasabi pairs well with many different ingredients. Its peppery, potent flavor and sharp aroma add brightness to bland foods like roasted or mashed potatoes. Wasabi also makes an interesting addition to dipping sauces or salad dressings.
Wasabi is a Japanese root plant of the Brassicaceae family, which also includes horseradish, cabbage and mustard. Occasionally referred to as a Japanese horseradish, this rare plant has proven very difficult to cultivate outside of its native Japan and parts of New Zealand, and is therefore quite expensive.
