Japanese wasabi is a flavor that pairs perfectly with sushi, sashimi, soba noodles, and fatty beef. Compared to its western counterpart horseradish, wasabi is a bit milder but has a much richer flavor profile. Way back in the Edo era, sharkskin graters were used to get as much flavor out of wasabi as possible. It is said that sharkskin’s thin cuts were perfect way to create soft and creamy wasabi while its maintaining viscosity, spice, and flavor.
