This is a doctored-up soy sauce recipe that came from Guam. Over there, this is always by the red rice and barbequed ribs and chicken. It really adds a nice flavor to the rice! Try it next time you serve plain or fried rice! YUM!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour the vinegar or lemon juice into a bowl.
  2. Add soy sauce a little bit at a time to mix it according to your taste.
  3. Add the onions and peppers.
  4. Chill until ready to serve.
  5. (You may use a hot sauce instead of hot peppers if you prefer. Use either, adjusting amounts to your preference for"heat!").

This really is a standard at every festia here in Guam. If I may make a suggestion, if you are going to make finadene, you really need to take some time and fine "boonie" peppers...small very spicy pepppers that grow in abundence in the can find them jarred in most orential food's well worth the work...but be pepper goes a LOOOOOONNNNGGGGGG way.

My girls grew up on this. Cucumbers in finedene are a standard at all of our barbecues, that and keleguin. I sent this recipe to my daughter who is making it for the first time. Thanks for posting

So so soooo so good! Exactly what I've been craving, and I'm eating some more now over rice for breakfast. Thank you SilentCricket--I'll be using this recipe again!
