Asian Mother Sauce

Asian Mother Sauce - S.E.A. Shu Mai
This Asian Mother Sauce Recipe is the perfect accompaniment for S.E.A. Shu Mai

I learned this Asian Mother Sauce while I was in culinary school and it quickly became one of my favorites. It’s a very diverse sauce that can be used in a variety of Asian-inspired dishes.

You can use it very simply, as is, for a dipping sauce for Disney Dishes like the S.E.A. Shu Mai from the Jungle Navigation Company LTD Skipper Canteen.

It works great whisked with a little neutral oil as a salad dressing,

You can also reduce it to make a thicker and richer version of the sauce for several dishes.

The possibilities are nearly endless.

Make this sauce, store it in your fridge and use it often!
