1/2 Photos of Ponzu Sauce, Authentic
The magic of Ponzu is possible in your own kitchen - Fresh is the secret; don't settle for the bottled stuff. Ponzu sauce is great with all kinds of fish, seafood, meats, and vegetables too. It's also used as a dipping sauce for appetizers and such - Your imagination is your limit.

- 1Zest your orange (this is most easily and effectively done with a Micro-Plane grater - if you've not discovered how great these are, you must get one!) - Now juice it. You need ¼ cup; make a screwdriver with the rest.
- 2Put orange juice, zest, sake, sugar, soy sauce, lime juice, and cayenne into a saucepan.
- 3Bring to a boil, turn down heat to a simmer, and reduce sauce by half for about 3 minutes.
- 4Mix together the water and corn starch, add to the simmering sauce, and stir until thickened.
- 5Allow to cook for another minute or two, add sesame oil, stir.
- 6It's done! There, that was easy, wasn't it? Now taste it.
- 7It's done! There, that was easy, wasn't it? Now taste it - Oh wow! Start imagining what you'll be able to do with this stuff.
