A great Asian style dipping sauce for spring rolls and dumplings. Based on soy, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and hoisin sauce.
Used different ingredients. I loved this recipe. I did lighten it up with about a tablespoon more water and a dash of rice wine vinegar, I also added a teaspoon of toasted sesame seeds, and a very tiny amount of dried chilli flakes, I think this would be great a little more spicy and served with Lettuce Wraps. Thanks for a great recipe. - 08 Oct 2008
Used different ingredients. I made this recipe as a dipping sauce for canape meatballs. I didn't have any hoisin sauce, so used extra soy sauce. I also used a few dashes of ground ginger and substituted soft brown sugar for the caster sugar. I doubled the recipe and it was enough for the meatballs and dumplings I had the next night! Even with all my substitutions, this recipe was a hit! Thanks! - 08 Oct 2008
Used different ingredients. I had been searching for a good dipping sauce for a long time and I have finally found it! This one is the closest to the Chinese restaurant flavour I have found. I added dried chilli flakes for some spice and cut down on the hoisin sauce. We serve it with steamed dumplings. Thanks! - 08 Oct 2008
