Based on other reviews I made this without the water, thinking I would add as much as needed. I felt like it was perfect without! I added mine to just barely cooked through chicken & veggies, simmered 5 minutes & served over noodles with toasted sesame seeds sprinkled on top. We loved it! Read More

We thought this was delicious! It is a bit of a sweeter sauce so be sure to keep that in mind. I used this for a dipping sauce for steamed buns and that was a nice pairing. I will def be using this recipe again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Great flavor. Very thin sauce if made by the recipe (probably good for a salad dressing). I made as directed then put in a saucepan and thickened with cornstarch to make a dipping sauce. It was really good and will make again. Read More

Excellent. Used it as a dip for spring rolls. Left out the water resulting in a thick full bodied flavor. A real hit. Definitely a keeper and one to share with others. Read More

Subbed Splenda for sugar and doubled the batch. Added 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch & brought mixture to a boil to thicken. Very tasty and can be used as a dipping sauce (potstickers raw vegetables) sauce for steamed veggies or a salad dressing. Reasonably healthy option to keep handy on busy weeknights...really liked this one! Read More

It tasted really good. Made it to go with some potstickers and it was amazing. Though I didn't have lemon so I used vinegar. Read More
