All Purpose Green Tea Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Lynne the Pirate Queen

Found on while I was searching for different ways to use the matcha (green tea powder) I just ordered for myself. The authors of the site suggest brushing it on pork loin or salmon before baking, using it as a dipping sauce for dumplings, or trying it as a salad dressing. I bet it would be great in other things, too. Easy and different, why not give it a try? :) Serving size depends on preference and what you decide to do with it; you'll want more for a dipping sauce, probably, than you would for a brushed-on glaze.

Thanks for sharing, Lynn. This would require a lot of tweaking to suit our taste, but there are too many strong ingredients for me to try to adjust the balance among them. I let it sit, then, for a week or so to marry the flavors but to no avail. If I were to try again, I'd cut way back on garlic and increase the oil to form an emulsion. I'll report back if I try; just hate to give up on a good idea. I really appreciate your posting this recipe, though.
