Clipped this out of our local paper awhile back. It sounds so yummy. I have not made it as yet but I am putting it here for safe keeping. Be sure to use freshly made wasabi paste available at sushi bars, large supermarkets or Asian markets. Because the wasabi and the avocado are the same color, be sure to mix the ingredients well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Halve the avocado, remove seed. With a paring knife, crisscross through the flesh; using a teaspoon, scoop out the diced flesh into a medium-sized bowl. Add the lime juice.
  2. Using a fork or pastry blender, mash the avocado, leaving some texture. Add the wasabi paste, ginger, cilantro, garlic and a pinch of salt (to taste). Mix well.
  3. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more wasabi and salt if needed.
  4. Serve with tortilla chips or deep-fried won ton triangles. Makes about 1 cup.

this recipe just did not turn out as good as it seemed to for others. it seemed a little bitter, it tasted a lot like the sushi that we make and would have been good inside sushi but i did not care for it much as a dip. but it was a fun alternative to try. i always like something new, and i'm glad it seemed to turn out better for others. maybe i did something wrong. thanks anyway

Great "alternative" guacamole. Very tasty and addicting. Despite the ingredients, nothing is overpowering. Thanx for posting this. I'll make it again.
