Asian Style Seafood Sauce

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

This recipe was created with some good friends a number of years ago, when we would regularly get together on a Friday night for a seafood feast.  Despite knowing they were a great source of zinc, we weren’t big fans of eating oysters until we tried them really fresh, with this sauce on top.   It is the perfect accompaniment to fresh oysters, prawns, lobster and other crustaceans.

I was a bit reluctant to put it together as a recipe as the amounts of each ingredient you use are usually adjusted according to taste each time.  So feel free to play around with this as much as you like to get the ideal balance of sweet, sour, salty and spicy.
