Soy-Garlic Dipping Sauce

  • by

A simple infusion of ginger and scallion make a fresh tasty oil perfect for dipping dumplings or drizzling over most anything savory!

Active Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chili oil
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


  1. Combine the 1 tsp sugar and 1 tbsp hot water in a bowl, stir to dissolve sugar
  2. Add all remaining ingredients except the sesame seeds.
  3. Lightly toast sesame seeds in a skillet set on medium heat. Keep an eye on the seeds, and move them around as they scorch easily. As soon as you hear one seed pop, they are done. Remove from heat and add them to the bowl. Stir to combine.


This sauce can be altered easily by adjusting some of the key ingredients. To adjust the saltiness, adjust the amount of soy sauce. To adjust the acid level or twang, adjust the amount of vinegar. You can also adjust the sugar amount for sweetness, and of course, the amount of garlic for the “garlicky-ness”.
