Japanese Restaurant Shrimp Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by CrysDanMom

We love the shrimp sauce at our local Japanese restaurant and I've worked from several recipes, adding my own tweaks and changes until I have found the right flavor for us. My husband says mine is better than the restaurant. :o) I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It's wonderful with shrimp and veggies but also with chicken and steak! Do NOT substitute the Hellman's for some other kind of mayo. It makes a difference in the final product!

I had to add about 3/4c of sugar and some Worcester Sauce because the recipe tasted like flavored mayo.
