Almonds are very healthy nuts to eat and when I saw this recipe in our local TV guide I thought Aha yet another dimension to the almond. Remeber that Wasabi is VERY Hot. Wasabi powder can be found in most spice areas of your local super market

Since it's more than apparent that heat kills the Wasabi flavor, why not add more Wasabi powder and popcorn salt to a bag, spritz almonds with soy after baking and shake them up in the bag?

These almonds are very tasty! However I have to agree with the other posters, that they are lacking that "wasabi kick". Years ago my husband made these and we had the same problem. I attributed it to the wasabi powder, and vowed to use a different brand. Well, I did this time and I got the same results. I think that maybe the powder is just not as strong as the paste. I also put some wasabi paste into the egg white mixture, and when I made the wasabi coating I put in extra powder. Still no luck,. The next time, I will add even more wasabi paste and see how that works.. I will get that "kick" that I want!

I'm giving this recipe a middle of the road 3 stars, for the fact that while somewhat flavorful (from the salt I would suppose), they don't have the wasabi flavor or bite.
