"Shake Your Sakura" Japanese White Sauce
Whenever we got out to one of the few Japanese steak houses, one of the stars of the show is their white sauce. And for years, I have been trying different recipes to replicate this sweet nectar. I finally found one that was very close, and then tweaked it to my liking.
This recipe is as easy as Pamela Anderson. I would encourage you to play around with it and see how you like it. (The sauce, not Pamela Anderson.) A word of advice, let this sit over night. This is a sauce that needs to sit so all the ingredients can bathe together. Serve with “Don’t Touchy My Hibachi” Chicken and Fried Rice.

- 1 Cup Mayonnaise
- 1/4 Cup Water
- 1 tsp Tomato Paste
- 1 tbsp Melted Butter
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon Paprika
- 1 dash Cayenne Pepper
- Whisk all ingredients together until the sauce is creamy. Do not add all the water. I add a little at a time until I get the consistency I want.
- Let it sit over night, or a minimum of two hours to let all the flavors melt together.
