Step 1

If the noodles have stuck together, loosen them by placing them in a colander and running cool water over them.

Step 2

While they drain, prepare the sauce: In a large bowl, mix together the wasabi and water to form a paste. Mix in the miso and sake. Then add the sugar, vinegar, and mustard.

Step 3

Remove a scant 1/2 cup of the sauce and set aside.

Step 4

Mix the noodles in the bowl with the remaining sauce.

Step 5

Set aside for 10 to 15 minutes for the flavors to develop. (For a very mellow flavor, allow to sit, covered, for up to 1 day in the refrigerator.)

Step 6

Transfer to individual bowls and top with the scallions and the sesame seeds.

Step 7

Serve the rest of the sauce on the side.

Mixed reviews between the hubby and I...he wasn't happy that it was a cold noodle dish...and we didn't get any real heat from the wasabi powder...so I added some red pepper flakes to up the heat level...I also added all the sauce due to the noodles soaking it up as soon as it was tossed together...glad we tried this unusual noodle dish...made for "Only the Lonely" tag game...
