Dipping Sauce for Scallion Pancakes Recipe

This sauce is simple to put together, lasts indefinitely in the refrigerator, and has an incredible number of uses. First and foremost, you'll want some on hand when you make Scallion Pancakes. It's an excellent marinade for chicken wings or skewers, and with the addition of some hoisin sauce, becomes a wonderful barbecue sauce. Brush it on grilled fish, or use it to complete your tempura vegetables or shrimp.
