"I love wasabi!!! This recipe was so easy to make and turned out fantastic, everyone was so impressed! I toasted the sesame seeds and doubled the amount of wasabi. I used 1/2 low fat cream cheese, a..." See morend half regular. The secret to shaping it into a perfect ball is chilling it for several hours before trying to shape it and roll it in the seeds. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!"
"I cut this in half....except would go ahead and use the whole can of shrimp with just one thing of cream cheese. Anyway...to mold...I lined a small plastic bowl with saran wrap and put the mixture in..." See more that...stuck it back in the fridge for a couple of hours....then carefully pressed it into the sesame seeds. It came out more like a "round" rather than a "ball". Good though!...OK...I made this again for a dinner party and they loved it....I used low fat cream cheese (just one 8 oz package)...3/4 can of shrimp...3/4 can of chopped water chestnuts...and 1 +-teaspoon of this ready to use (and very potent) wasabi paste...let that stay in fridge overnight....then roll it in the toasted sesame seeds when you're reasy to serve....stays in a ball shape just fine."
