The first time I made this recipe I followed the ingredients which states 4 tablespoons wasabi powder and the potatoes were WAY too spicy. The directions then below list 1 tablespoon of wasabi powder for 6 servings. I would be cautious of how much wasabi you use, it can ruin the whole thing. I use 1 teaspoon to 1.5 and that is perfect. Tastes great with miso salmon!

I actually thought that the wasabi would be more obvious but it was milder than I expected and the kids didn't kick up a fuss! And the wasabi definitely was fresh and in date! Its a great idea and satisfied a craving I was having.
