This is a great sauce that is very versatile. I like it best with chicken or shrimp, but you can use it for vegetables, or even steak.

I have been searching and testing many recipes for a ginger sauce that is like those served at hibachi (japanese style steakhouses) restaruants. This so far is the closest I have found with decent measurements. Initially it was too heavy on the soy taste, and so altered the recipe as follows: used 1 tsp bottled lemon juice, used rice vinegar (but white would be fine), added sugar to total 2 tsps., and added 1 tablesspoon of mirin (japanese rice wine, although I think adding a little water to dilute would be ok). I also used a white onion as yellow is sometimes too strong. Fresh ginger is key, as well as a good smooth puree. This is the closest I have come to duplicating the restaruant's version.

Yes, this is terrific--I grate the ginger instead of mincing. Start with the exact measurements, then go easy on each ingredient until you've got it nicely to your taste. I like it very much just as written--it works!

I just had salmon with a ginger sauce at a resturant, came home and tried to replicate it. This was a really good shot at it. I did use this as a marinade for salmon...could have doubled the recipe to have fresh to pour over. I didn't measure the ginger exactly, but it could have used more. Maybe a little less soy sauce. Got 2 compliments from my mom and husband on the flavor. Will make this again with more ginger and try it with chicken too.
