Dumpling Dipping Sauce

Dip Dip Dip

¼ cup soy sauce

1tsp sesame oil

1 ½tsp mirin or rice wine vinegar

1tsp honey

1 red chilli, finely diced
Dim sum… wanton… gyoza… call them what you will. Asian style dumplings taste amazing. While I haven’t found any in Manchester to rival the ones I loved in Singapore, the frozen ones aren’t half bad. To take them to the next level I make this straightforward dipping sauce that adds a depth of flavour occasionally lacking in shop bought dim sum. You could get around that by making your own, but I’ve done that and can tell you that it takes a day to make properly. This sauce takes 5 minutes tops and leftovers can be used in many ways, poured over rice or for bread dunking are two of my favourites.
To make, simply place all the ingredients in a jam jar and shake well. Try the sauce and add more to taste (if you’d like it sweeter, add more honey etc).
