Use on almost any preparation you would use a regular barbeque sauce on. Experiment!

Can also be used as a potent dipping sauce for fried and savory items.

·         2 Tablespoons Dark Roasted Sesame Oil

·         1 Tablespoon soy sauce

·         ½ Cup Kecap Manis, (sweet soy sauce is another name)

·         1 1/2 teaspoons garlic, minced

·         2 Tablespoons ginger, minced

·         2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar (or rice wine vinegar)

·         2 Tablespoons honey

·         1 Tablespoon Nuoc Mam Pha San, (optional, it is a mixed fish sauce)
