Homemade Wasabi Mayonnaise
Published by Robert Rose
Wasabi is a traditional accompaniment to sushi. We like to serve wasabi mayonnaise with grilled tuna or, better yet, tuna burgers.
NotesThis recipe contains raw egg yolks. If the food safety of raw eggs is a concern for you, use pasteurized eggs. Many grocery stores now carry pasteurized eggs in their shells.
