Have You Tried… Ponzu?

I recently discovered ponzu just by happenstance when I saw it on the shelf in the Asian section of my grocery store. I had never heard of it so I picked up the bottle to read what it was. I ended up bringing a bottle home to try and really, really love it. Ponzu is a combination of soy sauce and citrus and is much lighter than soy sauce. It’s just the perfect blend of citrus flavor and the light saltiness of soy. It’s pale in color. I used it recently in a salmon recipe and was really thrilled with the result. It’s also great as a dipping sauce for sushi for something different. I’m going to use it with chicken next. It brings a really great fresh pop of flavor to anything you use it in. This is definitely one of my newest favorite finds!

    I love discovering new ingredients. Will look for this. Should be able to find an Asian grocery while I’m in the big city. Sounds divine with salmon!

  2. This sounds like one of my favorite Asian dipping sauces–I just use equal parts soy sauce and fresh squeezed lime

  3. thank you for this recommendation. I’d never heard of this sauce before and it sounds great.

    Soy sauce always seems a little too overbearing for me, so I bet I’d love Ponzu.
