Tempura Dipping Sauce

7
CRIMSON667 0

"The traditional Japanese dipping sauce for shrimp or vegetable tempura. This is the full-flavored version - unlike the thinner, watery, less robust sauce being served in some restaurants. Serve in small bowls at each setting. Optionally, provide grated fresh ginger and grated daikon to mix into sauce."

I've made this without the dashi (didn't have any) or water for both tempura and eel rolls (thicken it more). Much better than the bottled stuff too!

This didn't taste exactly like traditional tempura sauce, and despite its description was still a bit too watery...but it was still very tasty! I would definitely make it again, but with less water.

Not bad, but not like the dipping sauces served here in Japan. I felt it was flavored to heavily on the dashi side. I think I will look for a different recipe but this was nice and easy and I had everything on hand to make with a last second Shrimp Tempura recipe I made tonight.
