Wasabi Deep Fried Prawns is an updated version of Deep Fried Prawns With Salad Cream. The sauce ingredients are basically the same, but with wasabi paste. If you like wasabi, you will like this because the sauce is less sweet, with a subtle hint of wasabi aftertaste. Many Chinese restaurants now serve this updated version instead of the classic Fried Prawns With Salad Cream.
The best tasting wasabi based food I had was wasabi ice cream with freshly grated wasabi. A few years ago, the family went on a trip to Japan and visited a wasabi farm. It was at the farm where I first tasted freshly grated wasabi. To my surprise, fresh wasabi do not have the same taste, color and sharp eye- watering "kick" as those horseradish wasabi more commonly found in sushi restaurants and supermarkets.

A Quiet Time: Are We Fully Relying on God?
When we accept Christ, we give our lives to Him. God is always in control and we need to learn to rely on Him fully. God's strength is what we need most and that's what we rely on the Lord for in our lives. We also need God's love for He loves us first. We rely on God's Word for he never breaks His Word and we live by His Word. His Word is a lamp and a light in our lives. Rely on God's wisdom too, when we need to make decisions, for God is our wise king. In times of difficulty, God is faithful and he keeps his promises.
'You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.'
