Mags here, doing a quick blog fly-by in between games of "Words With Friends" on Facebook. It has become my newest hobby (read addiction) and is quickly separating friends from friends and morphing into the new Hatfields(16 points) and McCoys(17 points) of online games. Substantiated rumor even has it that people are being tossed off of airplanes for refusing to power down their mobile devices in lieu of playing this game. And lest you get all worried about yet another thing to concern yourself with whilst packing, boarding and flying, these passengers were tossed prior to the plane's departure, not during actual flight. And last I heard, you can still get away with such things as tucking marijuana under your scrotum, if that's your bag (so to speak)
ANYWAYYYAH.... back to this quick blog post. And this one is all for my hubby. I promise you that it will relate to only .00062% of the rest of you, and in the time-honored fashion of rounding off numbers, we'll just give it an even zero. I'm merely posting this so I'll remember how I made this recipe a year from now when I run out again.
See that stuff? It is called wasabi sesame drizzling sauce and I found it last year at Trader Joe's. Had I known that it would eventually become hubby's closest and most coveted condiment, I would have bought more than one bottle. But as common sense usually dictates in such incidences, I tend to buy only one of something until I know whether or not I like it. We loved it (of course) and the next time I went back to Trader Joe's and tried to purchase another bottle, I was told that it was discontinued (of course.) Just like when Mary Kay discontinued the jade eye pencil and pink eyecicles that made me look like a cover girl. (Some things a girl just never gets over.)
Hubby puts this stuff on his grilled fish, especially tuna, mahi mahi and salmon. HE LOVES IT!! When I read the list of ingredients, I figured out that I could come pretty close to whipping up something comparable. And I did! Twenty seconds in the blender (not me.... the ingredients) and I was back on the computer licking my "Wars With Friends" wounds. (That's what I call it now.)
Wasabi Sesame Drizzling Sauce
1 1/2 ounces prepared wasabi paste (that's the entire tube)
1 1/2 ounces soy sauce (I used reduced-sodium)
2 ounces sesame oil
3 ounces canola oil
Put all ingredients in blender and process for 15-20 seconds. Pour into jar. Cover and store in fridge.
