Wasabi (山葵, わさび) is most commonly known as the spicy green paste served as a condiment to sushi. True wasabi is made from the rhizome of the Wasabia japonica plant.
What does wasabi taste like?
Real freshly grated wasabi tastes bright with a hint of quickly fading heat. It is pungent, yet delicate enough to let the flavor of raw fish shine. The hit of heat provided by the wasabi served with sushi is meant to highlight fish’s flavor, not cover it.
