Asian Ginger Sauce

The fresh ginger and soy sauce are typical Asian flavors that create wonderful sauces for pork, seafood and vegetables, specially carrots


  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy souce
  • one orange, juiced and zested
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 medium scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes


    Stir together the hoisin sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, orange juice, zest, ginger, and red pepper in a small saucepan. Heat on low for 15 minutes to infuse flavors. Can prepare the sauce and keep refrigerated for several days.

    Terri's Tips:
    To create a thicker sauce, add 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
    To cook carrots, slice and place in microwave steamer with 1/2 inch water. Cook on high until carrots are slightly tender

    Serve sauce over the carrots
