Menu Notes:
  • We often combine this dish with Blackened Ahi, as the wasabi mayonnaise is a perfect accompaniment to both. 
  • This is my preferred variation of a recipe I found on the Epicurious web site.
    The Ingredients (for 4 or more servings):
    • 120 ml (or ½ cup) of mayonnaise (preferably home-made)
    • 15 ml (or 1 Tbsp) of soy sauce
    • 15 ml (or 1 Tbsp) of lemon juice
    • 30 ml (or 2 Tbsp) of wasabi paste
    • Stevia equivalent of 7 cc (or ½ Tbsp) of sugar (stevia preparations vary greatly; I always read the label and exercise judgment)
    • 550 g (or 1¼ lb) asparagus

    The Method:
      1. Mix together the mayonnaise, soy sauce, lemon juice, wasabi paste, and stevia to form a homogeneous sauce.
      2. Trim and wash the asparagus in a steamer rack.
      3. Boil water in a pan that will hold the steamer rack.
      4. Place the asparagus in the pan and steam for exactly 4 minutes.
      5. Remove the steamer rack and run cold water over the asparagus until they are lukewarm to the touch.
