Japanese Steakhouse Shrimp Sauce

"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."

    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.

    Very good. Served over baked garlic shrimp and couscous.

    Simple and delicious! Next time I'll do without the ketchup though. I served this with sauteed shrimp. :)


I had the privilege of growing up in Ethiopia and Ghana as a young child, settling into the Charlotte, North Carolina area as a teen, and now my husband and I are missionaries living in southwest Germany. My parents live in Kenya and my sister lives in the Middle East. Family reunion cookouts are FUN! I’ve got a wonderful husband and a 8 year old son. I love traveling (go figure!), reading historical fiction, archeology and action movies. We all love to eat! My dh is more of a meat and potato’s guy, but I’ve introduced him to all kinds of eclectic foods. <a href="http://easyhitcounters.com/stats.php?site=kristaroes" target="_top"><img border="0" alt="Free Hit Counters" src="http://beta.easyhitcounters.com/counter/index.php?u=kristaroes&s=party" ALIGN="middle" HSPACE="4" VSPACE="2"></a> <a href="http://easyhitcounters.com/" target="_top">Free Counter</a> Some Contests I've participated in: <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"><img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/zaarcookbooktaggame.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/TEXMEXstickr.jpg"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/MedSTICKER.jpg"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/IRecommendTagGa_WonderFall-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/590105/hcabc.jpg> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/BeyondburgersST.jpg"> <img src="http://star.walagata.com/w/flower753/soup2.jpg">
