Use as many onions as you like for this. The ingredient list is only a guide as to how much wasabi you should use.


  1. Slice or dice the amount of onions that you would normally use for the meal you are preparing.
  2. Heat some oil in a skillet, fry pan or on the barbeque, or just heat the pan (preferred method).
  3. Throw in the onions, add a teaspoon of Hot Wasabi paste per cup of onion.
  4. Stir the paste into the onions while they are cooking.
  5. Eventually the paste will disappear and cook the onions until they are at the point where you like them.
  6. Serve with whatever you like.

I used a paste made from wasabi powder for this dish and made it up using a little soy sauce. The onions were delicious but a little salty, next time I will try using sweet soy. I used missy preferred method of no oil and It worked fine, I let mine cook down until they were getting sticky and burnt yum!

I used more than the wasabi called for (and it was restaurant quality) but it seemed to disappear in the pan. When the onions were done, I tasted it and I ended up adding soy sauce and more wasabi--that did the trick! Next time I'll try making a paste of soy sauce and wasabi and frying the onions in that, so it sticks. The flavor combination is yummy--like sushi without the fish. Would be nice served over rice.
