Japanese White Sauce

If you've ever eaten at a Japanese Restaurant or gotten take out from one, you have either tried the "white sauce" or you've seen people devouring it by the cup full haha.

When we go out the the Japanese Restaurants here its pretty much the main sauce that comes with the food.  Most people are always asking for more! Unless you're my husband and you hate mayo, then this is not for you.

But for the people that know what I'm talking about and the people like me who have an obsession with Japanese Restaurants and Japanese White Sauce, You'll be happy to know that it is possible to make it at home.

After a few failed attempts, we have a winner. :) While it isn't the exact same, I (and Hubby's friends who come over to eat), think its pretty darn close.

Japanese White Sauce

(Printable Recipe Here)

What you need:
1 1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon ketchup
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon paprika

What to do:

In a Medium bowl, stir the mayonnaise and water, until combined. Add ketchup, melted butter garlic powder, sugar, and paprika and stir. Stir, Stir, Stir.

If you want to make it easier to get smooth, microwave the mixture for about 30 seconds. You don't want to get it hot at all, but just enough to help the mayo mix in well.

I usually refrigerate for about 30 minutes before using.

Store in an air-tight container in fridge.

Perfect over shrimp, rice, chicken, veggies, steak.
