From garlicky sauce is a great way to add extra flavor to stir-fry dishes, particularly seafood dishes. The seasonings for garlic sauce are available in the international food section of many local supermarkets. Use the sauce in stir-fry dishes or any other Asian type dishes. Note: Instead of using 2 types soy sauce, I just use 2 tablespoons dark.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the rice vinegar, sugar, soy sauces, rice wine or sherry, chili sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl, stirring to combine. In a separate small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the water.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat in a saucepan. Add the garlic and cook, stirring until aromatic (about 30 seconds).
  3. Quickly restir the sauce, add it into the saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring. (This will take about a minute).
  4. Re-stir the cornstarch/water mixture and add it to the sauce, stirring to thicken. Refrigerate after use.

This tasted great- I just had some trouble with it "lumping up" and not wanting to mix into my fried rice. I will try less cornstarch as adding more water didn't help. Thanks for sharing - made for Xtra Hot Dishes of ZWT6.
