Healthier Yum Yum Sauce

Yum Yum sauce is a Japanese steakhouse sauce that is sweet, tangy, and creamy. It works well with any protein, but I prefer prawns. You can skip the store-bought stuff and whip it up in just a few minutes.

Our favorite sushi restaurant always serves Yum Yum sauce with the meals and our kids jump all over it. The ingredients are loaded with seed oils and sugar, so I decided to come up with my own healthier version. It takes no more than 10 minutes to throw together, and you will love how versatile it is! The recipe makes a good amount, so put it out as a dip for your guests. The macros are calculated on a 1.8 oz/50 g serving, so bear this in mind when digging in!

Chef Tips:

  • I enjoyed these with plump, cooked King prawns, but they are equally delicious as a dipping sauce for chicken kebabs, steak, or even steamed fish. (The macros indicated here are for the sauce alone.)
  • I steer clear of sugar, so I opted for my favorite natural sweetener, Swerve. If you prefer to use sugar (which I do not recommend), you can still enjoy this dipping sauce using the same amount of granulated sugar in place of Swerve.
  • If you do not have rice wine vinegar on hand, apple cider vinegar is a suitable alternative. The sauce needs some acidity – so do not omit this if you can help it.
  • Never forget to season any of your food. Salt and black pepper are essential for finishing anything you make and are excellent at “lifting” any flavors that are present.

Yum Yum sauce is a Japanese steakhouse sauce that is sweet, tangy, and creamy. It works well with any protein, but I prefer prawns. You can skip the store-bought stuff and whip it up in just a few minutes.

Instructions

    1. Combine the mayonnaise, tomato puree, sweetener, paprika, garlic powder and vinegar in a bowl. If it feels too ‘thick’, add a small dash of water, but this might not be necessary at all.
    2. Once combined, taste the mixture and adjust with salt and pepper.
    3. Cover and store in the fridge until needed. It will last for 3-4 days and can be enjoyed with just about anything! I love it with prawns (as pictured but excluded in the macros).

Notes
