Why is Wasabi Spicy?

The spicy taste of wasabi is due to an ingredient called allyl isothiocyanate. Here is a summary of why it is spicy and how to reduce the spiciness.

Homemade Dressings

Dressings are useful to have in the refrigerator. However, I am a homemade dressing person because it is quite difficult to use up the full bottole.

Actually, you can buy Japanese dressings such as sesame dressing in Finland. But of course, they are quite expensive. Then, it is better to make it by yourself! That’s another reason why I prefer homemade dressings.

Not only the standard sesame dressing, but also onion dressing and other dressings are my favorites. And this wasabi dressing is perfect for a refreshing meal, especially during summer.

Wasabi Tubes and Weights

Most of the time when you use wasabi, you use wasabi in a tube. However, putting the wasabi from the tube to a tablespoon and using a scale can be time-consuming.

2cm Wasabi Tube = 1g

I actually weighed the wasabi tube and found that 2 cm of wasabi tube is about 1 g. That is, 10 cm of wasabi tube is about 1 teaspoon. That is, about 1 teaspoon for 10 cm.

Surprisingly large, don’t you think? Still, 10 cm is the same as drawing a circle with a diameter of about 3 cm. If you wrap it around a circle or squeeze it out all at once, it will weigh only about 5 grams. Please try to get a feel for it by weighing it once.
