'Creamy' Wasabi Sauce in Stirfry & Open Nori Rolls

This sauce is amazing- it's hot but you can adjust it to your tastes, plus it increases in potency with time so you can start off with a subtle sauce and end up with a kicker after 3 days in the fridge. I loved it. I gave myself wasabi tears and wasabi brain/sinus heat headache. My other half is a chili man but I'm a mustard/wasabi girl. I just love the heat.. and vinegar for that matter. I can drink it straight mmm. The point was that this sauce is awesome, tastes great with veggies and is packed with goodness.
