Cook Time: 20 minutes
Makes 1 dozen

6 eggs
1 teaspoon wasabi powder
2 teaspoons water
½ teaspoon prepared horseradish
½ teaspoon mustard
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon soy sauce
Pinch of salt
Basic Furikake Seasoning (page 30), to taste

Place eggs in a medium-sized saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Remove pan from heat and cover tightly. Let sit undisturbed for 18 minutes.
While the eggs cook, prepare the wasabi mayonnaise. Stir together the wasabi powder and the water. Add the prepared horseradish, mustard, mayonnaise and soy sauce. Stir well.
Rinse eggs with cool water before peeling. Cut eggs in half lengthwise and scoop out yolks.
Place yolks in a bowl. Add the wasabi mayonnaise and salt. Mash and stir with a fork until the mixture is smooth.
Divide the egg yolk mixture evenly between the boiled egg halves.
Chill for at least 30 minutes. Sprinkle generously with Basic Furikake Seasoning just before serving.
