I was introduced to wasabi peas years ago and no matter how often I snack on them, I never tire of that wonderful burst of flavour when you pop one into your mouth! In my circle of friends we often joke that one never gets bored at a party when sitting next to a bowl of enlivening wasabi peas.
1) Soak peas in water to cover for 12 hours or overnight. Drain. Add fresh water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until peas are merely tender. Drain and let air dry in sieve.
2) Spread peas on non-stick or lightly oiled baking sheets. Roast in 200 F oven for an hour or until peas begin to dry. Empty into a bowl.
3) Combine remaining ingredients and mix into peas, stirring until evenly coated. Spread peas back on baking sheets and bake 250 F for 20 minutes or until coating is dry. Cool and store in tightly covered container.
