Two simple dipping sauces


We served these two dipping sauces as part of our 13-course dinner a few weeks ago, along with edamame beans and tonkatsu (which is so good I'll do a separate post on it). You could use it for absolutely anything though! Fish, chicken, beef, veggies... your imagination is the limit here. The chili mayo in particular was a big hit. The wasabi one is really more interesting, but perhaps not as widely appealing.

Chili Mayonnaise

3 tbsp mayo
1 tsp sriracha
1/2 tsp chipotle chili sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
pinch of salt

Wasabi Dipping Sauce

3 tbsp mayo
2 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp wasabi paste
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp sugar

Same method for both: just stir all of the ingredients together, and taste. Adjust if you'd like. The flavors will intensify though, so let the sauces chill for at least an hour before serving.
