While most of these sauces are not authentic, and I wouldn’t drizzle them over the best of sushi prepared by skilled sushi chefs, they can elevate some homemade sushi bowls or even grocery store sushi.
These are some of my favorite sauces to serve with sushi:
The most popular option is to make a spicy dipping sauce with a bit of wasabi thinned out with some soy sauce until it reaches your desired heat level. You can use regular soy sauce, gluten-free soy sauce (tamari), or low sodium soy sauce.
Kecap Manis (Sweet Soy Sauce) is a popular Indonesian condiment you can use as a glaze, dressing, marinade, dipping sauce, and more. So sweet and aromatic, this 3-ingredient sauce is easy to make and a must-have in your fridge!
This Aji Amarillo Sauce is a spicy and versatile Peruvian condiment. Spicy yellow pepper paste is blended with creamy and tangy ingredients, leaving you with an outstanding dipping sauce, spread, or dressing.
Skip the jar of store bought salsa and make Salsa Taquera instead! It’s a smoky and vibrant condiment that’s perfect for tacos, carnitas, grilled meats, and more. The ingredients are simple, but the flavor is extravagant!
This Peruvian Green Sauce (or Aji Verde) is a spicy and versatile condiment. Made with jalapeno, cilantro, and fresh lime juice, plus Greek yogurt to give it a creamy texture. It's an amazing dipping sauce, spread or dressing.
