Average Betty’s Spicy Asian Dipping Sauce Recipe


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili paste (such as sambal oelek or sriracha, adjust according to heat preference)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (or sugar, adjust sweetness to taste)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds (optional, for garnish)
  • A pinch of red pepper flakes (optional, for extra heat)


  1. Combine the Liquid Ingredients: In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil until well combined. This forms the base of your dipping sauce.
  2. Add Flavor and Heat: Stir in the chili paste, honey (or sugar), minced garlic, and grated ginger. Mix well to ensure all the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the sauce.
  3. Garnish and Serve: Transfer the sauce to a serving bowl. Garnish with the chopped green onion and sesame seeds for added texture and flavor. If you prefer a spicier sauce, sprinkle a pinch of red pepper flakes on top.
  4. Let It Marinate: For the best flavor, let the sauce sit for at least 10 minutes before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together and intensify.
  5. Enjoy: Serve your Spicy Asian Dipping Sauce with dumplings, spring rolls, grilled meats, or any other dish that could use a burst of flavor. It’s sure to add a delightful kick to your meal.

Tips for Perfect Dipping Sauce:

  • Storage: This sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. The flavors will continue to develop over time, making it even more delicious.
