Easy Tuna and Avocado Pasta with Wasabi Flavor


How do you use wasabi? You can enjoy wasabi more by mixing it with a variety of foods.

Wasabi and basil go together perfectly. Just mix with mayonnaise and dress with tomatoes, avocado, and soft boiled chicken for a simple and delicious salad.


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.

Tuna Mayo Gets a Makeover

Tuna mayo is very popular in Japan. It is the most popular onigiri ingredient and is also used in sandwiches. This time, I accented it with Wasabi and added avocado for extra nutrition and satisfaction.

My lunch staples are tarako pasta with Kalles Kaviar and wasabi tarako pasta. And this Wasabi Tuna Mayo Pasta is another favorite. I love how easy it is to make the sauce while the pasta is cooking.

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.
