My Secret Sushi Sauce Recipe | Spicy Sushi Dipping Sauce | Tasty Sesame Chili Dipping Sauce
Updated: Feb 18
We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE sushi! But I got really spoiled in Florida, because they serve the sushi with really delicious sauces. Some are very different, citrus blends and others spicy.
This is one of my favourite sushi sauces! It's my version of a sauce that is served at my favourite sushi restaurant in Tampa (Soho Sushi, just in case you visit!)
Make a batch of this sauce to try with your sushi next time! Soon, you'll never want to eat sushi without it! ENJOY!
Vas's Secret Sushi Sauce Recipe Cooking Time: 10 Minutes (Approx)
Makes 1 Jam Jar Size Bottle
Lasts 6 Months- 1 Yr in Fridge
1/4 Cup (60ml) Sesame Oil
8 Garlic Cloves (Crushed)
30 Dried, Red Chilis
Pinch of Katsuobushi Flakes (Optional)
1/4 Cup (60ml) Cooking Oil (Sunflower Oil)
1 Medium Onion (Chopped)
1/2 tsp Salt
Extra Sesame Oil after bottling
1 TBSP Chili Flakes (Optional)
1 Extra TBSP Sesame Oil (Optional)
Freshly prepare the Garlic by crushing the Garlic (it gives better flavour than grating)!
Peel and chop the onion. Keep aside.
In a small saucepan, heat up 1/4 Cup Sesame Oil on a medium heat for a minute or so. Add the garlic and gently fry it until it is cooked (not brown). Remove from the heat and leave in the pan.
In another saucepan, heat up 1/4 Cup Cooking Oil: I use Sunflower Oil but any non-flavoured oil will work. Add the chopped Onions and gently fry them until they turn opaque and are cooked but not brown. Add the Whole Red Chilis and stir them in. Turn off the heat and let both the fried garlic and fried onions cool completely.
Once the mixture are cooled, add them to a blender, being sure to add all the oil as well.
If you want to add Katuobushi flakes, add them to the mixture.
Add 1/2 tsp Salt and blend the mixture until it becomes a thick paste.
Taste the mixture. You can add extra Chili Flakes, Sesame Oil, Salt if desired and make it to your taste.
Drizzle some Sesame Sauce over the bottled sauce. This helps to keep it fresh.
Place the sauce in a clean jar and store it in the fridge. It will keep for at least 6 months.
You can use this sauce with Sushi, Spiring Rolls, Dumplings, or any other foods to spice them up!
