Yuzu is a citrus fruit commonly used in Japanese cuisine. It has a unique flavor and scent. This special sauce can be used for many Japanese dishes. Use it to dip sushi or toss with some cold soba noodles!


1 fresh yuzu (if you're unable to find this, try finding bottled yuzu juice at your Japanese grocer, or substitute with fresh lime)
1 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup sake
1 cup water
1/2 cup mirin
3 pieces of kombu (approximately 4x8" each)


  1. Cut the yuzu in half and squeeze the juice into a glass container. Keep all the pulp, seeds and rind and place them into the container as well.
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients into the container.
  3. Allow it to sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour before using.
  4. Keep in the refrigerator for up to a month. The flavor will continue to improve as it sits.
