Two easy and delicious recipes for dumpling sauce. One is a Japanese version while the other one is a take on Chinese dumpling sauce. 



Chinese dumpling sauce

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chinkiang vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chili oil

Japanese dumpling sauce

  • 3 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon plain rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chili oil


  1. Mix the ingredients: Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl and serve in individual dipping bowls.


Keep these sauces refrigerated in an airtight glass or plastic container. The Chinese sauce will keep for up to 2 weeks, while the Japanese sauce will keep longer, for up to 6 weeks, because it doesn’t contain any fresh ingredients).
