3 Sushi Sauce Recipes

Originally published April 7, 2017, Updated on 08/30/20

3 recipes posted in as many days! I’m on a roll – a sushi roll, in this case! (Sorry!)

In truth, the recipes I’m posting this week are all in lead-up to a big post I plan to make next week, which will be referring back to all of them. It’ll be a fun one! Anyway, *this* post is all about Sushi Sauce Recipes.

We love making sushi at home. While we do tend to stick to a certain few items (Tuna and/or salmon, usually with avocados, cucumber, and/or mango), sometimes we like to branch out and have a bit more fun with it – especially if we’re feeding more than just us.

These 3 Sushi Sauce Recipes are super quick and easy to make, and can make the spread a little more polished and impressive, when entertaining.

While each has a roll or two that they’re traditionally served with, it can be fun to play around with, finding new roll combinations that taste amazing

The Dynamite and Mango sauces are gluten free by default, to make gluten-free eel sauce, just be sure to use a gluten-free soy sauce.

How to Use These 3 Sushi Sauce Recipes

There are two main ways that I’ll serve these sauces:

Squeeze Bottle

I like these squeeze bottles – not only are they good for serving the sauces – being able to easily squeeze a uniform drizzle over the sushi – they’re great for storing them in the fridge, as well!

Pastry Bag

If you have disposable pastry bags on hand – but not the squeeze bottles – this is a good way to be able to drizzle the sauces over sushi.

Just spoon your sauce into a pastry bag, cut the tip off the pastry bag, and drizzle your sauce over the sushi.

This method isn’t great for storage, so I tend to only spoon small amounts into the pastry bag, and just throw out the pastry bag when I’m done. The remaining sauce can be stored in a resealable container in the fridge.
