If you've ever been to a Japanese restaurant, chances are, you have had this sauce! They usually serve it with shrimp, so it's also sometimes called Shrimp Sauce. This is my version of the popular Yum Yum sauce, with a kick! I added red wine vinegar and chili powder for some extra oomph. I served mine with tortilla crusted shrimp, so it was the prefect compliment. Don't be fooled by this also being called "shrimp sauce," you can and should put it on everything! It's great on chicken, steak, veggies, and my personal favorite, french fries! I'm starting Whole30 in a week and a half (God help me), and you can totally make this sauce Whole30 compliant by using your own approved mayo and ketchup. I will more than likely be putting it on everything! Its quick, tasty, and lasts in the fridge for about a week. Feel free to adjust the spices to your taste level. Some people may like it more or less spicy, more garlicky, etc.
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise (light or Whole30 works fine)
- 2 tbs ketchup
- 1/2 tsp red wine vinegar
- 1/4 tsp Splenda (omit if doing Whole30)
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp Siracha (omit for Whole30 or use compliant hot sauce)
- 1 tsp water (more or less depending on the consistency you like)
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Taste to see if you want to add more garlic, hot sauce, etc. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. That's it! Easy peasy.
