A fun appetizer for a cocktail or any dinner party. Wasabi Cream Cheese with Teriyaki Drizzle. My friend Janie served this recipe for one of our Girls Goodies and Gab events. I have continued to enjoy this on many occasions . However, I make my own teriyaki sauce !
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice and zest
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon sesame oil
3 tablespoons mirin or you can use white wine with sugar or sherry
1/4 cup water mixed with 1 teaspoons cornstarch
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. For a smooth sauce strain out the bits.
Store in the fridge for up to a month.
Wasabi Cream Cheese & Teriyaki served with wonton crisps or rice crackers
Cut one block of cream cheese in half, add a generous amount of wasabi, drizzle with Teriyaki sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
