This classic citrus-based Japanese sauce is quick and simple to put together and full of great umami, sweet, tart, and salty flavors.
The classic calls for mirin, a rice wine similar to sake but with a higher sugar content and lower percentage of alcohol. For die-hard fans who make Japanese recipes often, this might be something you have on hand already, but sake (with just a pinch of sugar or honey added) will work. Sherry will work in a pinch, but it might be sweeter than the sake so don't add any sugar.
Ponzu keeps well and having it on hand is a great idea to serve with almost anything. I was inspired to publish this recipe by a fantastic quinoa bowl with seared tuna and ponzu. You can get creative with tofu, shrimp, chicken, etc. Pair with quinoa or brown rice, or even sprinkle on your tacos.
