|Sushi and Asian Dipping Sauce|
We made sure to tell our server that we had never had sushi before and she helped us to choose a varied selection of sushi that she thought we would like. It didn't take long for us to become adept at using chopsticks and we enjoyed the additional flavor from the wasabi, pickled ginger and dipping sauce. We are now sushi fans and will often have it at home. This dipping sauce is my personal Asian dipping sauce creation.
Asian Dipping Sauce
Printer Friendly Recipe
- 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- Sliced scallion for garnish
At least one hour before serving, mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside on your counter to let the flavors combine. Serve with your favorite sushi or Chinese dumplings.
You can easily make more or less of this Asian dipping sauce by remembering the 3-2-1 ratio of ingredients. It is three parts soy sauce, two parts rice wine vinegar and one part sesame oil. Then add as much ginger as you like.
Since that introduction to sushi several years ago, we have enjoyed sushi at home and in restaurants many times. One of the things I love about sushi restaurants is the care taken in the presentation of the sushi. So much pride is taken in plating sushi. It is a feast for your eyes as well as your mouth! When serving both sushi and Chinese dumplings at home I try to put as much care into my presentation as is done in a restaurant. That's half the fun of the sushi experience. This dipping sauce helps to make having sushi at home a treat. I hope you'll love it!
