I have a similar preparation for tuna that I particularly like. I've never tried any wasabi butter with the tuna. Although, when I've done tuna like this I've tried to serve it with wasabi mashed potatoes. It produces a similar effect.

The wasabi butter is terrific. Wasabi mashed potatoes would produce a similiar effect just not as wonderfully oozy. The dry texture of the grilled fish is a nice foil for the melted butter. I am going to try wasabi mashed potaotes with my asian grilled pork loin - Char Sui, a Nigella recipe. Our daughter loves spicy food and mashed potatoes are her very favorite dish. Thanks.

The Maximum Leader

Nigella.... She is great.

Wasabi mashed potatoes go very well with chicken, pork, and fish. I find they don't hold up as well with beef or veggie dishes.

I tend to add too much wasabi to my potatoes for my family. I keep with the old rule of 2 potatoes per person and 2 for the pot when doing prep for potatoes. I suppose I use 4-5 tablespoons of wasabi per 10 potatoes. 3 might do the trick.

Mrs. Peperium

Yes, the roof of our daughter's mouth might be gone afterwards if I put that much in. But Mr. P would like it.

The Maximum Leader

You know I must have mistyped. I add 4-5 teaspoons of prepared wasabi to the mix. Although 3 will do the trick for most people.

Mrs. Peperium

Mr. P probably wouldn't have minded too much if our the top of our daughter's roof had vanished. She would have sounded like Lord Emsworth pig man.


But I can hardly imagine that RK would allow his son to marry a Michiganderess with no roof on her mouth.

Mrs. Peperium

Wouldn't every man want for his son a wife who couldn't talk back?
