This was really good! However, the ingredients and instructions could be tuned up a bit. For instance I had no idea how much wasabi to use, so I just kept adding it to the butter until I achieved an acceptable taste. Next time I think I'll lower the amount of ginger. All-in-all it's a tasty dish. Thanks for posting!
