Rachel's Wasabi Cocktail Sauce

"This is cocktail sauce with a kick. You have to like wasabi to enjoy this. We really make this with double the wasabi, but thought it might be too much for some people. Start with a little and add until you get the flavor you like. If you add too much just increase the ketchup."

just a hint Here is the sauce I use and it does not use ketchup: 1 1/2 tablespoons wasabi powder 2tablespoons mayonnaise 2 tablespoons sour cream 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1/2 tablespoon Tabasco sauce (or to taste) 1 green onion, white and part of green,finely minced salt and pepper Growing up in New England and having seafood and seafood sauces my whole life, I did not much like this sauce. I was a bit hesitant to use ketchup anyway, to me ketchup is cheap and not worthy of good seafood. Personal opinion, but sorry, I did not like this. Will not attempt again.


Too sweet and not enough wasabi. Have had much better recipes from this site.


This is very much like Super Al's Cocktail Sauce from this website (which we LOVE) except for the wasabi instead of horseradish. We upped the wasabi for a little more bite and it was a perfect balance with the sweetness. Keep cookin', Rachel! ;)
