asparagus with wasabi mayonnaise

Categories: Appetizers, Posted by Sandy Bergsten


1 large bunch thin asparagus spears, trimmed

½ cup mayonnaise

2 tsp soy sauce

1/2 tsp sugar

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

1 tsp wasabi paste



Steam asparagus in a covered microwave dish with three tablespoons water until crisp-tender about 1 ½ to 2 minutes on high (don’t over cook). Immediately refresh in an ice bath. Drain well. Wrap in paper towel, place in a Ziploc bag and refrigerate. This can be done earlier in the day.

Whisk together the mayonnaise, soy sauce, sugar, lemon juice and wasabi paste until sugar is dissolved. Place in a ramekin, cover and refrigerate. Can be made a day ahead of time.


Serves 6
