Excellent with fish (especially salmon, swordfish, tuna, or sea bass), chicken, or beef. Rub a little sesame oil on the fish, poultry, or meat prior to grilling. Use this sauce for basting near the end of the cooking time, as the high sugar content encourages burning. Serve the rest of the sauce on the side, with some steamed rice.
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1" piece lemon peel
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1" piece ginger root, crushed
- Combine the soy sauce, wine, vinegar, sugar, garlic, ginger and lemon peel in a saucepan. Bring to a boil on the sideburner of your barbecue, and simmer until the sauce is reduced by about half and is quite thick. Cool and remove the garlic, ginger root, and lemon peel.
