Quick, easy and makes for a great basting sauce when wanting something a touch different when grilling. Amazing how something so easily made makes for a crowd pleaser. I usually triple the recipe and when wanting a little spice I add some dried crushed chili peppers.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil (can use 1 tablespoon each of sesame oil and cooking oil)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 14 teaspoon ground ginger (I often add some finely grated fresh ginger)


  1. Put ingredients in a bowl, mix to blend.
  2. Great grilling sauce to brush on your pork or chicken.

Delicious basted on chicken breast fillets and cooked on the barbie. Served with a garden salad on the side for a great dinner

A really lovely great sauce! full of flavour - I used a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger. I brushed some of the sauce on the chicken a few hours before hand.
We barbecued it last night and it was served with potato salad and tossed salad. Thanks for posting!

This was a delicious basting sauce. I basted a chicken breast over a hot barbecue (yes we are in the middle of winter and yes it was pouring rain) and it was yummy! The sauce was put together in a matter of seconds and the chicken was really tender. I served with with a bok choy and mushroom stir-fry and Beet Salad. Thanks so much for posting your recipe Gerry
