How to Make Wasabi Ginger Sauce


  1. Place ginger, shallot and garlic in blender jar; cover blender jar. Set on Low; pulse 5 times. Scrape sides of jar; pulse 5 times. Add remaining ingredients in order given. Blend for 20 seconds. Transfer to a resealable container and let stand for 30 minutes before using, to allow flavors to develop.
  2. Unused portions may be refrigerated for up to a week - stir before using.
  3. Tip:
    As a marinade, use about 1 tablespoon of marinade per portion. Meats such as boneless, skinless chicken parts, pork chops, or steaks can be placed in a resealable freezer-weight bag, coated with marinade and frozen. When thawed, they will be fully marinated and ready to cook.
