What is the sweet pink sauce? 2005/4/9 05:35
They serve it to you at Japanese steak houses in the south.It is a sweet pink/orange sauce. It is given at the beginning of the meal along with a ginger sauce for dipping. It appears to have a mayo base. It is not a jelly sauce or sweet and sour sauce. It is great n salads to rice. Recipes accepted!

Hi! It sounds good, but no idea. I mean, it could be a kind of creation of the chef.

It's probably mayo with ketchup. You can add Tabasco or sriracha or mirin, etc. to taste.

Mayo and shoyu (soy sauce) is another sauce, commonly used for vegetables.

This is the shrimp sauce found in Japanese steakhouses. It is sweet and pinkish-orangish in color. You can substitute fat-free mayo, butter, and 0-calorie sugar, and it still tastes great.

ginger! 2006/4/30 01:35
I know what you are talking about, and it is amazing! I went to one japanese restaurant and i found that they did not have my favorite sauce! I was so diappointed, and they only had this strong ginger sauce and i asked for what they called a "sweet and sour" sauce. The sweet and sour sauce was very pink...but it wasn't what i had tried. I added a bit of the ginger sauce to the sweet and sour sauce until it reached a "peach" color. I found my suace! It defintly has the ginger kick to it and is amazing!

I too love this sauce and found that 1 cup of mayo, 1 tsp (or more) fresh grated ginger and a a few drops sesame oil makes a sauce very much like the ones in Japanese restaurants.

OJ 2010/2/17 02:37
At our local Japanese steakhouse the shrimp/white sauce was wonderful. I asked the chef of our hibachi grill and he said it was mayo and oj. Don't remember any thing else but definitely had OJ in it.
