Since I already had all the ingredients on hand I decided to give it a shot. If I didn’t like it then I never would’ve published it. Since you are reading this you know it turned out great.

I barely tweaked the original recipe I was basing this one off of. Since everyone has different palates and tolerance for heat, the only ingredient I adjusted was the amount of Wasabi Powder. I strongly suggest starting with 1 tablespoon and then doing a taste test. Add more until you achieve the desired heat level.

This Spicy Hot Mayonnaise recipe calls for some pickled ginger. It is more commonly known as Sushi Ginger (pictured below). This is one of the few recipes that require an ingredient that you probably don’t have on hand.

Wasabi Powder is often used for making sushi. It can also add some heat to salad dressings, mayonnaise (like this recipe), vinaigrettes, and dips. You can also make a wasabi paste by mixing it with a little hot water.

If you are concerned about buying some Wasabi Powder just for this recipe, maybe you should give my Vodka Mashed Potatoes recipe a try. It also calls for some Wasabi Powder.

If you need a little inspiration on how you would use this delicious Ginger Wasabi Mayonnaise, you can use it as a dip for veggies or sweet potato planks but I like to use it as a condiment for a sandwich. I think it would pair very well with a Tri-Tip Sandwich or a Grilled Chicken Sandwich.
