Yum Yum Sauce Recipe
A tasty, mayonnaise-based dipping sauce similar to the ones you find at Japanese steakhouses.
This Japanese shrimp fried rice mad with homemade yum yum sauce is not only delicious and full of Asian flavor, but also easy to make for a weeknight dinner.
I've tried several yum-yum sauce recipes before and haven't liked the results. This recipe tastes exactly like restaurant sauce!
I'm confused because I have been cooking for a long time... sure do know how to follow a recipe and I followed this to the letter. I know yum yum sauce and this wasn't it. Not sure why this is rating so well. Sorry. :(
I'm giving this four stars because I doctored it so much from the original. I live in Virginia, and in my town there are two Japanese Steakhouses and about a dozen Japanese Express takeout places. I know people who come back to Lynchburg JUST for the yum yum sauce. I believe I've had yum yum sauce more like what this recipe produces, but, I don't like mine thick and syrupy, so, I really think it depends on what kind of Yum Yum you're looking for based on what your local restaurant serves . .. I did end up listening to everyone and using Hellman's original mayonnaise. The first time I made this using Kraft Olive oil mayo and hated it, but I also followed all the other ingredients, so, who knows how much the mayo plays into the equation. Here's what I ended up doing: 1 cup Hellman's original Mayo 1/4 tsp garlic powder 2 TBSP rice wine vinegar 1 tsp paprika 1.5 tbsp melted butter Dash cayenne pepper 2 tsp honey (I try to avoid refined sugar when at all possible) I felt this had a great kick, was thin enoug
Really good recipe and easy to follow
