Easy Ponzu Sauce

Ponzu is a tart sauce made with lemon juice. It is used on grilled meat, fish or sashimi. This is an easy version but comes very close to the original Japanese recipe…

Ingredients (for 2)

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar


  • Take a bowl and whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, soy sauce and mirin until well combined
  • Place on medium-low heat, stir in the sugar and mix until dissolved
