Asian Mole

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Maito

This sauce is much adapted from a Ming Tsai recipe. It goes well with chicken, pork, vegetables or tofu. I haven't tried it with seafood, but I imagine it would go wonderfully with shrimp (and one reviewer really liked it over salmon).

This deserves more than 5 stars. What a great medley of flavors. Very easy to make. I served it with grilled salmon, but looking forward to trying it on chicken or shrimp.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Over medium-high heat, sauté onions, garlic, ginger and chile until caramelized.
  2. Deglaze pan with wine. Add cranberries and 1/4 cup of water, and cook until about three fourths of the liquid is absorbed.
  3. Transfer to a processor while warm, so that chocolate will melt. Blend with rest of ingredients, including remaining 3 tablespoons of water, until smooth. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over meat, tofu, or vegetables.
