I’ve come across a very interesting technique for dealing with Wasabi. I know you’ve seen those hot-shot guys out there that can down a Habanero shake (I’m one of those guys) and follow that by running a mile in 110 degree heat (not so sure I can do this). But, for most of you out there, spicy food is hard to deal with. I’ve seen it, I’ve witnessed it in my family and I feel for you.
So, I’ve come up with this simple technique that will help you in your sushi-bar “I can’t eat Wasabi because it burns me” conundrum. Here it is:
- Eat the Wasabi, don’t get too carried away though
- Do NOT exhale out of your nose!
- Continue to inhale deeply through your nose
- Exhale out of your mouth only
- Go back to step 2
Repeat steps 1-5 until you are in the safe!
