Here’s a quick and easy recipe for Ponzu Sauce that often comes in handy around here!

If unfamiliar, Ponzu is a refreshing soy and citrus-based sauce or dressing that we’ve been using on our Poke bowls, in this Avocado Salad , with these Sushi Burritos and most recently with this Grilled Bok Choy.

What I love about this Ponzu Sauce is how light and low-calorie it is- it’s low in oil, having only a touch of toasted sesame oil for flavor.

If you can track down yuzu for the citrus, it is heavenly. But most orange citrus fruits work well here- oranges, mandarins, and even tangerines are nice and refreshing addition!

  1. This was great! I added a little dash of yuzu along with the fresh squeezed orange juice. It’s amazing how you could really taste the brightness of it, even with such a small amount. Thanks for the recipe!
