Make this Quick and Easy Yum Yum Sauce at home to pair with your favorite Asian dishes and appetizers. It goes great with egg rolls, shrimp, rice, steak and vegetables.
If you’ve ever been to a hibachi restaurant or Japanese steakhouse, like Benihana, then you probably know what Yum Yum Sauce is. It is that delicious sauce that goes good with just about everything. You can use it as a shrimp dip, or dip your egg rolls in it. So good, it’s addicting. You can put it on your rice dish and it tastes amazing with steak and vegetables too! I bet it would taste really good with cauliflower rice.
There are many versions to this recipe, but I’ve started with a basic recipe that isn’t too spicy. You can always add more spice if that is your flavor. The ketchup turns it a nice pink color that will be familiar to you if you’ve seen it before. If you like a less creamy sauce, you can add more water. Start with this recipe and see how you like it. Make adjustments based on your tastes.
The only kitchen tools you need to make Yum Yum Sauce are a large mixing bowl and a whisk. If you wish to save some for later, store in an air tight container (affiliate link) in the refrigerator.
