Wasabi is a must. As one who could live on habanero peppers
without a problem, wasabi kicks my butt on the heat level.
It's a much different burn, just enough is heaven but too
much is nasal agony
btw - the "fake wasabi" i've tried is soooo far from real
wasabi it's sad, but you can't tell until you look
closely or taste it.
BTW - supermarket horseradish, like Gold's, is a
different type of plant. Gold's tastes the same as if
you grew and pickled it yourself. More or less...
