Okay, so if you have ever been to a Japanese steak house, you know the sauce I’m talking about. It’s usually orangish, has a little spice, it’s a little creamy. Bottom line, it often times will make the entire experience! Add a little bit of this ‘yum yum sauce’ and wow it really makes the food delicious! Our good friends introduced me to Japanese food a long time ago and she has really mastered making this sauce at home. I literally can’t tell you how much I like it. They invited us for dinner the other night and upon finding out I informed my wife I was bringing my camera. I really want to share this amazing recipe with all of you!
The pictures do not do this sauce justice. After begging Selina for the recipe, I now can reproduce it in my home (which is super exciting) when we make Japanese food! If you want a Yum Yum Sauce recipe that will truly make your family and friends impressed, try this out with the most popular Japanese sushi from the great sushi restaurant in houston. It is truly a delicious sauce.
- 1 Cup Mayo
- 3 tsp rice wine vinegar
- 3 tsp white granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- ⅜ tbsp paprika
- ⅜ tbsp garlic powder
- Whisk all ingredients until combined and then put place in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
- I add like 3 tbsp of chicken broth/water to thin it out.

I make a seafood sauce too but mine is different. I will make yours and mine and compare 🙂
1/2tsp. garlic powder
dash of tabasco sauce
1/4tsp. white pepper
dash of salt
1 1/2Tbsp. ketchup
1/4tsp. black pepper
I have been making this for years and can’t remember who I got it from. I love the name yum yum sauce.
LOL that’s what we’ve always called it….YumYum! I’d love to hear about the comparison!!
Marie Horton says
I added the 4 oz water. And that messed it up ….it was tastey and thick before then . Why would the recipe call for water ?
Hi. How long will this be good in the fridge?
Marie Horton says
1 hour the recipe says.
No, she said place it in the fridge for at least 1 hourr. But would like the question answered. How long will it keep?
My sister always talks about this when she goes to ohio sawa hibachi?
she brought me a lil bit of it..
To me it Tasted like sweet n sour sauce mixed with ranch
pretty sure it was more pink and less orange
I’ll have to test my theory my Tastebuds landed me to and also try this recipe since this is probably what it actually is
Marie Horton says
Does anyone know the recipe for the sauce they used at the Southern Kitchen restraunt. In Dallas. S few years ago ?.?
I tried this recipe, and the only paprika I had was smoked paprika. It’s definitely delicious, but not quite the same as the sauce at the Japanese steakhouse. Next time I make it, I’ll just go get some regular paprika.
Dawn from Texas says
Try adding a tbsp or two of tomato paste, with those ingredients how is it so orange? I always add tomato paste to mine. and simple syrup for the sugar because then you don’t have to thin it out with broth.
Denise thank you for giving the recipe a try, so glad you enjoyed it!
How much is 3/8 of a tablespoon?
It is 1 tsp + 1/8 tsp. Those are probably the closest measurements you can find on a standard set of measuring spoons.
Sorry to say but youre wrong. 3/8 of teaspoon is less than half a teaspoon. So the closest measurement would be a half teaspoon. What you suggested would be way almost three times to much
Umm, check that question again- 3/8 of a TABLEspoon, first answer is correct – exactly 1/8 less than 1/2 a tbsp 😉
Chuck Premoe says
Correct me if I am wrong but 3/8 of a tbsp. should figure out to be 1 tsp. Do the math…there are 3 tsps. to a tbsp. and to each tsp. there are eight 1/8’s per tsp. which would equal twenty four 8th’s. Twenty four divided by 3 equals, eight 8th’s or one tsp. Sounds complicated, but it’s not. Besides Paprika isn’t that strong of a flavor that if you got 1/2 tsp. to much that it would over power everything else to the point that you would have to throw it away.
Oh wow, I just made this and it is waaaay too sweet! Maybe I can tweak it to still make it work, but I suggest using less sugar.
I find it way too sweet as well.
I’m thinking there needs to be less sugar used as well.
The recipe should have been 3 teaspoons instead of tablespoons. I hope you will give it a try again.
Are you saying should be 3 teaspoons of Rice Wine Vinegar instead of 3 Tablespoons?
Holy cow is this good! Made it last night and had a plate of french fries with it. I made the recipe strictly as directed, and am addicted! Reminds me of the homemade chip dip my dad makes – now I know his secret! Thanks so much!
IT SAYS ONE HOUR COOK TIME but your recipe says make it and put in frig
Add a small amount of soy to offset the sugar…. I agree with adding tomato paste
I absolutely love this recipe. I didn’t change anything but I used Hellmans. I’m sure it would taste different with miracle whip. Thanks so much for the recipe. I tried to give it five stars but the button isn’t working right.

Barbara Pritchard says
I have been searching for a good “Garlic Sauce” recipe. I am hoping you can help me out with that. Thanks
This is not Japanese
It was created to appease american palettes. So if you’re looking for a real Japanese sauce. This ia NOT it.
LISA WOOD says
