Once I found my way around the Asian Market and picked up my stuff I was excited to make this sauce, as I love it so much when I go out to eat and have sushi. This is delicious and just as good as in the restaurants! Make sure you don't cook it too long or it will become caramelized and thick!

We made sushi for the first time and I made up this delicious sauce to use on our Eel rolls. It was just like at the restaurant. I love the sweet taste of this sauce on my rolls and it couldn't have been better! We plan to practice using this sauce on other sushi rolls real soon!

I love Eel sauce and never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever be able to make my own. I was totally thrilled to have found this recipe! I went to the Asian market here and got all the ingredients I needed and the end result was well worth the effort. This sauce really adds to the taste of the sushi and I loved the sweetness so much, and it really offset the taste of the fish so nicely!

This sauce was pretty easy to put together after finding the ingredients at my local Asian market. The sauce thickened up nicely. Make sure you don't cook it too much or it will start to firm up and do more than carmelize. We pulled ours off just in time! Excellent recipes Linda. We enjoyed it so much atop our many sushi rolls that my friend and I made using your tutorials How to Make and Roll Sushi and Types of Sushi Rolls.

I made this sauce and have used it several times now. It is just like the Eel Sauce you get on many of your rolls when you go to a restaurant. It's not difficult to make and it is well worth the effort and is cheaper to make than buy. Loved it on my tempura rolls!

What an experience I had making sushi over the weekend. I used Linda's tutorial on How To Make Sushi and also her recipe for Types Of Sushi, and they were both so informative and helped make my sushi experience awesome! We made this sauce to go along with our Eel and Philadelphia rolls. It was AWESOME! It makes quite a bit, so you will have some on hand when you feel like having sushi. This was as good if not better than the Eel Sauce I have gotten on my sushi in the restaurants. Now I can make it at home in no time and enjoy it in the privacy of my own home. Thanks Linda!

I made the sauce to go with my sushi. It came out really good. When I smelled the dashi cooking, I wasn't so sure I was going to like the end result (smells like foul fish) but mixed with the other ingredients in this recipe it came out really good, and tasted just like the Eel Sauce I have had so many times in restaurants. I also made Linda's recipe for "Spicy Mayonnaise Sauce" and that was excellent too! Never knew sushi making could be so easy. Thanks for sharing this one with us Linda'sBK
