My friend, a cook at our favorite Japanese restaurant finally gave me this recipe for their fabulous Shrimp Sauce. It's so good we dip our meat and veggies into it and then pour it over our rice too. And yes, it really does have peaches in it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup peaches in heavy syrup
  • 1 12 cups mayonnaise (the real stuff)
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup or 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 12 tablespoons rice wine vinegar


  1. Mix all ingredients, except vinegar, in a blender and refrigerate overnight to let the flavors blend.
  2. Add Vinegar before serving and mix well.

This sauce is called YUM-YUM sauce at a very famous restraunt in columbus, ohio. Note that the peaches and their syrup are pureed to liquid before making this sauce. Thank you so much for a much sought after recipe that has been a much kept secret. It is also very good on fried rice and with everything else asian.

Excellent recipe. One of the only recipes I have found for shrimp sauce that gets both the consistency just right (Thick enough to coat the back of a spoon but slowly drizzles off) as well as the flavor. Just the right balance of savory, sweet, and with just a barely-noticeable touch of tanginess from the rice vinegar. Most other recipes out there just taste like mayo for the most part, this actually tastes like a recipe that any popular Japanese/Hibachi restaurant would use. Thank you so much for sharing.

Wonderful balance between sweet and tangy - and so easy to make! I made homemade mayo in my blender first (recipe #71967), so it was a simple matter to just add the rest of the ingredients. Reviewed for PAC.
