Sweet & Spicy Asian Dipping Sauce

Total Time

This simple sauce can be thrown together with items most people have in their pantries! Great for dipping potstickers, Spring rolls or Summer rolls. The Asian hot sauce in the ingredient list below can be subbed with Asian hot chili oil, if you prefer. I like to use Sriracha Hot Chile Sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Asian chili sauce (I like Sriracha Hot Chile Sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 -2 tablespoon sugar
  • sesame seeds (to garnish) (optional) or chopped scallion (to garnish) (optional)


  1. Wisk together ingredients in a bowl, making sure sugar is completely disolved.

I made this last night and used it to dip store bought eggrolls. Deeelish! I might cut back to 1 tsp for the chili paste. I'm thinking of using it as a base for hot and spicy thai soup. Thanks Kozmo!

This is great! Modifications: Braggs Liquid Aminos (Soy Sauce), Stevia (sugar). Served it with "Is It Egg Roll or Eggroll" recipe from this website. EXCELLENT!

Very Good! I used scallions and added some fresh grated ginger. Used just a pinch of sugar! Thanks!
