Ponzu Sauce - yields approx. 2 cups
1/4-cup bonito flakes
1 ounce kombu
1-cup soy sauce
1/4-cup fresh lemon juice
2-tablespoons fresh orange juice
1/4-cup rice vinegar
Combine the bonito flakes, kombu and soy sauce together and let marinate for 24 hours. Pour through a fine sieve and add the lemon juice, vinegar and water to the soy. This sauce gets better over time. Keep it refrigerated.
This sauce is excellent as an alternative to cocktail sauce for freshly shucked oysters, or as a finishing agent to a stir fry.
