Very good! Add vinegar slowly, a tablespoon at a time. Use white if you don't have rice vinegar, but rice is way better. I also had to add water until it was thin enough. Loved it!

For those that say this tastes like too much vinegar are you using rice vinegar? I thought this was perfect. I dip french fries in it.

I just made this for my family and it is brilliant! I also recommend the sauce on a salad or vegetables. I found that two tablespoons of vinegar were enough for my taste and a little less sugar. It's amazing, though. I will recommend this recipe to anyone who will listen.

Me and my husband both thought this dressing tasted like pure vinegar. Recipe calls for too much vinegar. Will not make again.

Far too much vinegar. I added a lil ketchup to get rid of the sour. Next time I will only use 1.5 tbs of vinegar.

It mainly tasted like vinegar. If I try to make this again, I will leave out the vinegar or maybe try using just 1 TBSP.

If you have ever been to a Hibachi restaurant and have had their "Japanese Ketchup" or "seafood sauce", you know when I say, OMG!!!!!!!!!!! This version is the greatest and tastes better than what you get at any restaurant. I have 5 year old twin girls and they put it on everything. Thanks!!

This sauce was excellent. It is very much like the sauce used at Da Ru Ma in Naples/Sarasota, Florida. I felt the need to reduce the sugar a bit. I only use 2 tablespoons. This also keeps well in the fridge for a few days. For anyone that is interested, email for the salad dressing. I have a great recipe for that! istockL@aol.com
