Shrimp Sauce Yum Yum Sauce
Don’t you LOVE Japanese food? I do! My FAVORITE part is the Shrimp Sauce Yum Yum Sauce! Many people like to call this delicious sauce Shrimp Sauce, Yum Yum Sauce, Japanese restaurant White Sauce, Hibachi Shrimp Sauce, Dipping Sauce for Shrimp, Benihana Sauce and Terry Ho Sauce.
One thing it is NOT? Cocktail Sauce. It is so delicious that I could drink that stuff by the gallon! I could totally – TOTALLY – embarrass myself at the restaurant by turning up the shrimp sauce bowl and drinking it down!
Worry no more! Like me you have probably tried other recipes for Shrimp Sauce, Yum Yum Sauce, Japanese restaurant White Sauce, Hibachi Shrimp Sauce, Dipping Sauce for Shrimp, Benihana Sauce and Terry Ho Sauce that you found on the internet. They all left you wanting something, didn’t they. This is the real deal right here.
If you are a West Coaster, you might be wondering, “What is it?” We noticed when traveling out west this past year that no Japanese Restaurants seemed to know what Shrimp Sauce was!!! HORRORS! All I’ll say is, “it’s a sauce, it goes on ANY Japanese food – not just shrimp – and it is DOG GONE delicious!” Don’t believe me? Check out the comments below!
You might be wondering, “how did you get that recipe anyway”. While most of my recipes here on Loaves and Dishes are created by me – in this case, I kind of “did a deal”. A friend of my daughter’s is a line cook. He gave up the recipe after I shared my macaroni and cheese recipe plus I fixed dinner for my daughter and a group of her friends at my house. Being a friend’s mom has it’s privileges!
So wait no longer – go and fix yourself some shrimp sauce and drink as much as you want. I promise not to tell anyone, its just our little secret! Lol.
Let me say – you can easily just make half of this recipe if you believe it will be too much. But why??? You can eat shrimp sauce on everything! A little on your eggs, a little on your sandwich, a little to dip your chips in – and HEY! Its all gone! I think this is the PERFECT container for your Shrimp Sauce Yum Yum Sauce, right here. Then you can just pour yourself a little more and…. a little more….. and a little more. In fact, I think this will hold a double serving of the recipe! EVEN BETTER!
