"A variation on the classic Mexican dip using some ingredients common in Japan. I developed this recipe because i couldn't get cilantro. The wasabi gives it a nice unexpected kick."

This was very unusual and very tasty. I only used 2 chopped shiso leaves and 1/2 tea. wasabi paste. I actually like it better with lemon juice (1/2 lemon squeezed). Also, try first with 1 jalapeno, add more if desired. For those that don't know what a shiso leaf is... It's a Japanese mint leaf. Each leaf is about 3" big. They usually come like 8 leaves per carton. They are usually found in the produce section of a Japanese store.

Loved this! I couldn't find shiso leaves at my regular grocery store, so I did a little online research and subbed a bit of basil and mint for it. I used a little soy instead of salt and green onion isnstead of regular. The wasabi and ginger are great. We had this with fried wonton wrappers - fun combination. Next time I'll go to the swank gocery for the shiso leaves - I'm curious about them now. Thanks for the recipe!

This was an interesting twist on guacamole. I was serving a thai themed meal so I decided to try it. I couldn't find Sisho leaves anywhere so I had to leave them out and substitute some thai basil. I recommend cutting the wasabi in half to start. The flavor was a bit overwhelming, you can always add more if you need it.

A great twist on guac! I served mine with asian rice crackers. I subbed basil and mint leaves for the shiso, per the other reviewers. Great recipe!

Loved this!!! But 2 whole jalapeno peppers were even a bit much for a spice lover like me. Could not find shiso leaves so I used mint leaves. This was delicious. Had with multi-grain pita chips as appetizer to sushi night!
