Yum Yum Sauce! just like the sauce from Japanese hibachi restaurants – and it’s SO EASY. Perfect with grilled chicken, steak, veggies, rice bowls, wraps, and more.
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon sugar or agave
- 1 teaspoon all-purpose spice mix (garlic powder, paprika, etc.)
- salt to taste
- 2 tablespoons water
- Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. That’s it. You’re done. Rock on.

I like to leave the water for last so I can control the thickness (sometimes I want it to be more runny to drizzle on things, and sometimes I want it more thick for more of a dip). For the spice mix, I usually just have something on hand that is a generic grill seasoning or chicken seasoning or something and that works just fine. If you don’t have a mix on hand, start with a little garlic powder and then add paprika or cayenne to taste.
