Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

"I used to think mashed potatoes could only be good if they were smothered in butter, but one day I improvised this recipe. These potatoes are great paired with hearty red-sauced meat or Asian-inspired fish entrées, like sesame grilled tuna or honey-orange salmon." -John Tyler Connoley, Silver City, NM
