Japanese recipes

Japanese cuisine is well-loved for its light and fresh flavors, with many distinctive dishes that are popular all around the world. Traditional Japanese recipes feature staples such as rice, noodles, seafood and vegetables, with great importance given to seasonal produce. One of the five essential tastes in Japanese recipes is the savory taste of umami, which is a common characteristic of broths, mushrooms and seaweed.

Why You’re Not Eating Real Japanese Wasabi

If you like Japanese cuisine, chances are you’re a fan of sushi – and if you’re a fan of sushi, chances are you probably love wasabi. But did you know that most sushi restaurants outside of Japan don’t use real wasabi at all?

Wasabi is a spicy root vegetable related to cabbages with a taste similar to horseradish. It’s grown in the lush river valleys of Japan, which possess the optimal growing conditions for this Japanese staple ingredient. It’s an environment that’s difficult to replicate in commercial farms.

For this reason, it’s hard to come by real wasabi in the West, and it’s pretty expensive too. Wasabi can cost around $200 per kilogram. Thanks to the hefty price tag, most restaurants in Australia, Europe and North America opt for a wallet-friendly version of the spicy ingredient.

The alternative to Japanese wasabi is made from a mixture of horseradish, spicy mustard, and sometimes traces of the real ingredient. Luckily, the wasabi substitute offers the same spicy kick real wasabi is famous for, so you can enjoy your favorite Japanese recipes without breaking the bank.
