Sesame Wasabi Cream Spread

MENTAL STATUS: "Pleased". Making good progress so far on my story. :)

I have a BBQ to go to on Friday and I offered to bring an appetizer. But I want to bring something "new" since I think I've been sticking my roasted red pepper hummus and southwest salsa in every one's faces all summer. I think people have had enough. So...

I've decided to bring a tasty (and simple) dish I'd tried a few months ago at a party. It's a version of what's on the Kikkoman website--with one ingredient added.

1 package (3 oz.) cream cheese
2 tablespoons Kikkoman Soy Sauce
2 to 3 tablespoons Wasabi paste
2 tablespoons sesame seed, toasted
Assorted crackers

Place cream cheese in shallow dish. Cut cream cheese horizontally down the middle. Spread Wasabi paste all over, then place cream cheese top back on. Pour soy sauce over cream cheese; let stand at room temperature about 2 hours, turning over occasionally.
Remove cream cheese from soy sauce and "roll" in sesame seed.
Cover carefully with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Serve with crackers.

I'm telling you, it may not sound like much, but IT IS YUMMY.

My friend is having a book launch party next weekend. I think I'll make that. Thanks!

I have made it but it was with Tamari sauce instead of soy. It is a bit sweeter, so not as salty. It is great!!

Add chopped or sliced cucumber for a fresher lighter version. This is a huge hit at every event that I have served it.

Furikake is great sprinkled on the outside.
