Nori ten wasabi (wasabi tempura seaweed crisps)
A mindblowing snack for wasabi lovers!
These small crackers pack a real wasabi punch, so they're not for the faint hearted, but if you like wasabi peas and seaweed then you'll love them as I do. On one side crispy, seasoned seaweed, and on the other a light tempura-like batter, dusted with wasabi flour. Be warned: the dusting is not evenly distributed so it's wasabi roulette!
I bought some in store from the Japan Centre at Piccadilly last week, but annoyingly they only sell the non-wasabi version on their website: http://www.japancentre.com/items/1783
Worth tracking down if you have an asian grocers near you, they're excellent on a warm afternoon with an icy cold beer..! Ahhh.
