Yum Yum Sauce

This homemade Yum Yum Sauce is made with mayonnaise, ketchup, butter, rice vinegar, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and sugar. It takes about five minutes to prepare and tastes fantastic.

Yum Yum Sauce is also known as Japanese White Sauce or Sakura Sauce and is commonly found in Hibachi Japanese steakhouses throughout America. This is a small batch recipe.

This sauce is delicious on top of any rice, but especially fried rice. Try it with this Shrimp Fried Rice or this Hawaiian Fried Rice. It’s also a great dipping sauce for Tempura shrimp, grilled shrimp, chicken, pork, and steak. This is a copycat recipe.
