With the upcoming May Bank Holiday and the possibility of a sunny weekend, I’m sure we'll be seeing quite a few BBQ's getting fired up.
Here’s a fantastic homemade sauce I’d like to share with you for your BBQ. This might become one of your favourite recipes for the summer.
In the past I’ve used this sauce on BBQ fore rib of beef. The beef would usually be cooked on the BBQ till medium rare, sliced thinly, served on a large plater and the delicious sauce drizzled over the top. This dish is always a crowd pleaser and disappears really quickly. You can also use this sauce for other cooked meats, seafood or even vegetables & tofu.
~ Sweet, Savoury & Spicy Soy Sauce ~
• 4 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Premium Light Soy Sauce
• 1 tbsp sesame oil
• 2 tbsp honey
• 3cm knob of ginger - julienne
• 2 birdseye chilli (optional) - finely sliced
• 1 medium spring onion - finely sliced
• small bunch of coriander- roughly chopped
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 2 tbsp vegetable oil
Add light soy sauce, sesame oil, honey in a bowl and stir till well mixed. Add ginger, birdseye chillies (optional but I like a little kick in my sauce), spring onion, coriander to the soy sauce mix and stir till well mixed again. Sprinkle salt on top of the soy/herb mix. Pour boiling hot vegetable oil on top & mix. This is now ready for you to spoon over your cooked meat, seafood or vegetable. Or just use as a dip.
Top tip: for additional flavour sprinkle a teaspoon of sesame seeds over the sauce before pouring over the hot vegetable oil. You can also replace the light soy sauce for a gluten free soy sauce.
I tend to use Lee Kum Kee Premium Light Soy Sauce as I find it has a more delicate taste than some of the supermarket brands. You should be able to get your hands on a bottle in most major supermarkets.
