For some this is like a tangy version of soy sauce, but we like using it a bit more selectively: Use it to marinate steak, pork and chicken or try it with some olive oil for tangy salad dressing. We find it’s the perfect dipping sauce for wontons, chicken skewers, and all kinds of dumplings. Finally, instead of a squeeze of lemon, you may be surprised to find a dash of Yuzu Ponzu is a fun substitute.
