Notes: Look for wasabi powder in the spice or Asian section of your supermarket or in an Asian grocery store. If making wasabi mayo up to 1 day ahead, cover and chill.
2 tablespoons dried wasabi powder
1 cup regular or reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
Fresh mint sprig, rinsed
1 1/2 pounds (31 to 40 per lb.) shelled cooked shrimp, rinsed and drained
How to Make It
In a small bowl, mix wasabi powder with 2 tablespoons water until smooth. In a food processor or blender, whirl mayonnaise, lemon juice, mint leaves, and three-fourths of the wasabi mixture until smooth. Taste, and add salt and more of the wasabi mixture if desired; save remaining for other uses.
Scrape into a bowl and garnish with mint sprig. Serve with shrimp to dip into sauce.
