Wasabi Tots Recipe

Ingredients

7 Baking potatoes, 6 peeled&quartered, 1 shredded
1 Lemon juiced
2 Tablespoons Wasabi powder
Vegetable oil for frying

Serves / Yields: 4 1/2 C Servings

Preparation Instructions

Boil the 6 quartered potatoes in salted water until cooked through.

Using a food processer or hand-masher, mash the potatoes until relatively smooth.

Mix the wasabi with 2 Tablespoons tap water.
Blend the wasabi paste into the mashed potatoes.

Shred the 7th potato and toss in the lemon juice.

Using cold mashed wasabi potatoes, spoon out about a ball about the size of 2 tablespoons and form it into a rough barrel shape.

Take about 1 Tablespoon of shredded potatoes and press around the wasabi tot.

Continue on until all the mashed potatoes are gone.

Heat the vegetable oil in a saute pan. When hot, carefully add 8-10 tots. Brown on all sides. Continue on with the rest of the tots. Once all the tots have been browned, place briefly on a paper towel.

Serve immediately or refrigerate for later use.
