Ponzu Sauce – Just One Cookbook Kitchen Pantry
What is Ponzu Sauce? The word Ponzu is derived from the Dutch word “pons”, which means citrus juice. Originally “ponzu” contains just the citrus juice of sudachi, yuzu, and kabosu and vinegar, and it did not include soy sauce.
However, these days when most of Japanese recipes refer “Ponzu”, it usually means Ponzu Shoyu (shoyu means soy sauce in Japanese) which contains a mix of ponzu, soy sauce, sugar or mirin, and dashi.
You can find following brands of Ponzu in Japanese or Asian grocery stores.
If you cannot find Ponzu in your area, then you can make it from scratch. This is the closest flavor I can replicate to the commercially sold bottled ponzu.
