Yuzu-Wasabi Vinaigrette

Yuzu-Wasabi Vinaigrette
Yuzu is a sour Japanese citrus fruit, used both for its juice and its aromatic rind. The yuzu (which is about the size of a tangerine) has an aroma and flavor that is distinct from any other citrus fruit, somewhat akin to a cross between grapefruit and lime.

In this recipe, a traditional vinaigrette gets an refreshing Asian makeover - perfect with fresh greens and with Seared Ahi Tuna!


½ cup yuzu juice
¼ cup white soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp wasabi powder
¼ cup rice wine vinegar
¼ cup Mirin
2 Tbsp shallot
2 Tbsp sesame oil
1 cup grape seed oil


Mix yuzu, soy sauce, sugar, wasabi powder, rice vinegar, Mirin, shallot and sesame oil together in a nonreactive bowl.


Add the peanut oil gradually in a slow, steady stream while whisking continually.
