I made this the day before and I thought for sure the ginger would be too strong, but it wasn't. I doubled it and it is a great sauce. I used it with #98345 potstickers. Keeper!

This is some good "stuff"!! I loved the flavors of ginger and soy...then kicked up a notch by the red pepper. The only substitution I made was Splenda for the sugar, and I only used 2 tsps instead of 2 1/2 tsps. I did double the recipe, so I could try it out on asparagus. It was so good that I also used it on okra. Don't laugh....that was fantastic too! Thanks, Bev for sharing this keeper.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much for posting. I used this with crispy wontons #20235, and it was perfect. I had leftover pork mixture from wontons, so I fried it up in a skillet and served it in lettuce leaves with this sauce. I think I have a new favorite. My fiance says that I could put this sauce on anything and he would eat it.

Great dipping sauce. I followed recipe exactly except that I used 1/2 tsp sambal oelek instead of hot red pepper flakes. I served it with Pot Stickers #13320, and Yakisoba #82262.

Recipe is a winner! As I am on vacation, a few changes made are: use brown sugar rather than white; 1/2 tsp minced shallot rather than green onion; 1 tsp ginger paste rather than fresh ginger root; and one shake of hot pepper flakes rather than the 1/2 tsp. I also added 1/2 tsp minced fresh garlic clove. All made a perfect dipping sauce! Also, the sauce when mixed yielded 1/2 Cup in quantity rather than the 1 cup noted in this recipe...will certainly make this any time!

This has the WOW factor, true!
As the sesame oil comes right through!
Added diced fresh chilli, personal taste too!
Drizzled over beef wontons, WOW factor too!
Thanks!
UPDATE: Made this sauce again for a party!

This is fantastic! Exactly what you get from chinese restaurants when ordering potstickers. I cheated with the potstickers and used premade frozen wontons, but it was great. Thanks!

Hubby said he liked it but wouldn't ask for it to be made. I didn't like it, and I like salty. I felt I needed to add an extra tablespoon of sugar after tasting, and I still didn't like it. Oh well. :(
