- Meanwhile make the wasabi aioli.
- Put all the aioli ingredients in a jar, measuring cup, or small blender. Using a hand blender blitz them into a smooth and creamy paste. Taste and correct seasoning, you’ll might need to add salt if you’re using a type of tahini that isn’t salted at all. Some Middle Eastern tahini butter is naturally salted.
