Wasabi Soy Almonds

Salty, spicy, nutty roasted goodness for any occasion.

Our mild addiction to the food section in Target led us to this recipe. Salty, spicy and nutty this snack is equally suited as a starter for an Asian-inspired meal or snack for the big game. Avoid missing the third quarter by remembering to use aluminum foil to protect your baking sheet.

Equipment Needed: Baking Sheet, Aluminum Foil, Mixing Bowl, Microwave-safe Container (to melt the butter), Fork

Serving Suggestion: Family Style

Servings: 6 ish

Suggested Wine Pairing: Whatever you’re drinking

Suggested Beer Pairing: Whatever you’re drinking


  • 10 oz almonds ($3.99/10 oz)
  • 1/4 C soy sauce ($2.50/10 oz)
  • 3 TBSP unsalted butter ($4.99/lb)
  • 2 TBSP wasabi powder ($3/1 oz jar)


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  • Put the butter in a microwave-safe device (we used a coffee mug) and melt it completely.
  • Mix in the soy sauce and wasabi powder. Put your almonds in the mixing bowl and line the baking pan with aluminum foil.

Pour the soy and wasabi in and mix thoroughly so there are no clumps.

  • Pour the mix over the almonds and toss them to coat evenly. Pop those puppies in the oven for 5 minutes, stir them and bake for another 5. Wait for them to cool before serving. If the spirit moves you, toss them with a little sea salt and some extra wasabi powder to taste.

Toss the nuts with the sauce to coat evenly.

  2. This recipe really didn’t work for me. The soy sauce separated when baked and was clumpy on the nuts which were greasy from the butter. The taste was off too. We threw them all away. Yuck.

      Sorry it didn’t work, Lisa. This was an experimental one for us and actually turned out ok. If you’re interested in giving it another go, we’d suggest dropping the heat of your oven down to 250 and just cooking it a bit longer.
