I've made these twice at family gatherings and everyone LOVES them! The aioli sauce is a must too. I will definitely make them many more times.

Tried this last night. It was great!!! There is no wasabi paste in my neck of the woods, but there is wasabi paste. Add a little water and your done. These were great. Had 2 for breakfast. LOL
