What to do with Wasabi?

Cleaned the fridge today and found a tube of wasabi. What can I use this for? Don't have any sushi at the moment. Any thoughts?

  1. It can be used to add a bit of spice to mashed potatoes, mayo, and mixed into pasta and potato salads.

    1. Squeeze some into your next stirfry. Add to mayo for a roast beef sandwich (it's horseradish, after all!). Bloody Mary mix, anyone? Or even use it to create a cocktail sauce-like dip for shrimp. etc.

      1. Part of the sauce (tare) for cold buckwheat noodles.

        1. mix in with some mayo and use on grilled fish/chicken

          1. add some to some fresh guacamole with a touch of soy sauce and serve with rice crackers.

              Japanachos. If CH keeps this up, the recipe notebook will need a dedicated page for guacamole incarnations. Come to think of it.....
