Wasabi Marinade

So complex

So complex

This marinade works many different ways. It is good for fish, chicken or any meat really. You can grill it or roast it or make a noodle bowl with it. All you need to do is save a little prepared wasabi the next time there is sushi in the house.

Wasabi Marinade

  • 1 tbsp wasabi
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 2 tbsp ginger minced
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup
  • 1 lb protein diced small

Mix everything together and add protein. Let marinate 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes. Cook however you planned.

Oh here is how to make the noodle bowl pictured.

  • Marinated meat
  • 1/2 lb green beans cleaned snapped to 1″ pieces
  • 1/2 cup dried shiitakes soaked in 1 cup boiling water
  • 3-4 carrots sliced into thin 1″ strips
  • 4- green onions white parts diced fine green parts sliced into thin rounds
  • 3 garlic cloves sliced thin
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 lb rice noodles
  • Salt/pepper

When cool enough squeeze all liquid from mushrooms and dice fine. Boil 6 cups water and pour over noodles in a large bowl. Let stand. Meanwhile in a large wok or deep chefs pan heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil over medium high heat. Add seeds and stir fry until fragrant. Add white part of onion and reconstituted mushrooms. Saute until golden, then add garlic and cook 1 minute. Add carrot and saute until soft then add meat and any remaining marinade and brown. Add broth and bring to a quick boil then turn heat down to a simmer and add green beans. Cook until beans are soft then remove from heat and mix in green part of onion. Fill a bowl with strained rice noodles and top with meat mixture. Pour broth from pan until it covers noodles and serve with hot sauce.
