Can;'t go wrong with wasabi!!! Even my little girl loved these fiddleheads and it was her first time and she does not like spicy. I only had 1/4 lb of fiddleheads to experiment with for first time cooking them and there were 3 different takes on what fiddleheads taste like....asparagus...broccoli...swiss chard....I think they just taste great!
