Ginger Sauce Recipe

Ginger sauce makes a nice dipping sauce with appetizers containing shrimp, such as shrimp balls or potstickers, and doesn't require a trip to the Asian market for ingredients. You can also use ginger sauce to brush on shrimp before grilling.

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1/2 cup light soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 spring onions (green onions, scallions), chopped


In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, red wine vinegar and minced ginger. Set aside.
In a small heavy saucepan, melt the brown sugar on high heat, stirring rapidly, until it is just melted but not burnt. Add the soy sauce and red wine mixture. Bring to boil until brown sugar is melted again (it will harden temporarily after the soy sauce mixture is added).
Remove from the heat, pour into a serving dish and garnish with the chopped spring onions. Serve with potstickers, gyoza or other Chinese dumplings.

Awesome sauce, Member Tfutechie

I make this dipping sauce ALL THE TIME! I think it is very close to the one served at Outback Steak House with pan seared ahi. Whether you agree or not is is delicious!
