Blair’s Heat Wasabi Green Tea Sauce

December 20, 2013

  • Well, doesn’t that title sound interesting? It was interesting to me that is for sure. The kicker for me was actual Wasabi Rhizomes being used in the product. That is a fact some people might overlook but for me who has never had real wasabi I was super stoked.

    ”What do you mean you’ve never had real wasabi Mr. Rhino?” You may ask and I will answer, most of the wasabi we ingest be it at a sushi restaurant or on wasabi peas is just horseradish and or mustard that is died green, and for that reason this had me super excited. 

    The ingredients list is marvellous, green tea leaves, cilantro, wasabi rhizomes, ginger, lime juice, and a few others including a compound I have never heard of before in my life, even with my chemistry background *google became my friend on this one we learnt it was a processor in processed meat like hotdogs to increase the rate in which nitrate reduces to nitric oxide thus retaining it’s pink colour (which means it’s an anti oxidant)*

    Scent, wasabi, garlic, salt, zesty jalapeno. The cilantro and lime juice mixed together well to make a very Thai like scent, which again excited me as Thai and even Americanized Thai is my favourite of Asian cuisines. Oh don’t forget the fart like smell that came from the loose leaf green tea.

    This sauce was chunky yet creamy, buttery even. However there was no heat at all, just a touch coming forth at the back of the throat. A great flavour, garlic, salt, lime juice, zesty jalapeno, ginger…it was an amazing base for a Asian Fusion guacamole…just think about it almost everything in guacamole was in this sauce!

    Food pairings this could be good for Asian cuisine, ballpark dogs, or for me sautéed rapini with garlic butter. I would not suggest this as a cooking sauce it just had to rich of a flavour with to little heat, I’d see this more as a topper after you’ve cooked.

    All in all great flavour no heat, if your looking for something interesting and different this is your choice, if your looking for a heat to taste ratio that is at all good, this is not it. I’d suggest it for sure though especially for those that want an interesting topper with no heat.

    Onwards to heat,

    Slainte,
