I made this recipe as a dipping sauce for appetizer meatballs. I didn't have any hoisin sauce so used extra soy sauce. I also used a few dashes of ground ginger and substituted brown sugar for the white sugar. I doubled the recipe and it was enough for the meatballs and potstickers I had the next night! Even with all my substitutions this recipe was a hit! Thanks! Read More

Wow! This tastes exactly like the dipping sauce that comes with the dumplings from my local Chinese take out place. The stuff is awesome. I used rice wine vinegar in place of the water. I will defintely be making this again and again. Read More

I loved this recipe, I served it with the Won Ton Snacks recipe I found here too, 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 red pepper flakes, I think this would be great a little more spicy and served with Lettuce Wraps. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More

Excellent sauce to serve with Asian appetizers. When I served it with pot stickers at a party everyone commented on the sauce more than the appetizer. Read More

Wow Jackie what a fantastic dipping sauce! I added about five tablespoons of hoisin sauce because I love the stuff and I skipped the sugar as there's enough in the hoisin. Served this with homemade egg rolls for our Christmas Tree chopping party yesterday. This is the best and I thank you! Read More

A great dipping sauce. Drizzled it on my Oriental Chicken Wraps. Used low sodium soy sauce and didn't bother to heat the sauce before using. Read More

Fantastic dip for spring rolls! We brought home spring rolls from a local restaurant & served them w/ this great sauce. I did decrease the soy some & it was still a bit salty even though I used low sodium. I think this recipe may ideally need a quality soy (I just kikkoman's low sodium) but it was still great even if a little salty. Would love to try w/ dumplings too...thanks for the recipe! Read More
