Ponzu Sauce

MAKES 1 CUP

.......................................................

1⁄2 cup tamari, nama shoyu, or soy sauce
1⁄3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1⁄4 cup mirin
1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
1 teaspoon lemon zest
Crushed red pepper, optional

Ponzu sauce is a traditional Japanese condiment that is a blend of sweet, sour, and savory flavors. This zesty all-purpose seasoning is good on just about everything. Drizzle it lightly on vegetables, grains, meat, fish, or fowl for a refreshing lift or blend it into dressings or dips as a flavorful accent. For added zing, embellish Ponzu sauce with toasted sesame oil, garlic, gingerroot, or other seasonings of choice.

Place all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk until well blended. Pour the sauce into a pretty serving bowl and serve with a small spoon.
