  • In a small saucepan add 1 teaspoon of Hon Dashi powder, 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar, and 3/4 cups water. Bring it to a boil for about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat then pour in 3 tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce and 2 tablespoons of Mirin. Give it a good thorough mix and serve with shrimp tempura or make your own tempura batter for fried vegetables.


Dashi soup stock substitute
Typically, tempura dipping sauce is made with dashi soup stock. However, this can be hard to find. The quickest and easiest way to replace it is by dissolving hon dashi powder with water. Hon dashi powder is easier to find in grocery stores and can be purchased on amazon.com
How to store it
This tempura dipping sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week in an airtight container.
