So, what is wasabi?

Wasabi is a pungent and spicy condiment that is commonly used in Japanese cuisine. It is made from the grated root of the Wasabia japonica plant, which is native to Japan. Wasabi has a unique flavor that is both hot and sweet, with a distinct aroma that is similar to horseradish. It is often served with sushi, sashimi, and other seafood dishes to add a kick of flavor and to counteract the fishy taste. Wasabi is also believed to have health benefits, such as improving digestion and reducing inflammation. However, due to its strong flavor, it should be used sparingly to avoid overwhelming other flavors in a dish.
