This recipe of spicy soy-vinegar dip is a flavorful condiment to enjoy with any fried or grilled foods. I balanced the saltiness and sourness of this dip by adding a little bit of sugar. While I used my homemade chili garlic oil recipe to add a wonderful kick to it!

        Hi Eric,

        You can add it too as it gives different level of taste. I do have different dip with ginger and it goes pretty well with almost any foods too.

        Hi Miebakagh,

        I seldom use butter or margarine as part of my meal, but rather as part of the whole recipe. Like when I'm cooking baked items. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

        Hi, Dred Cuan, I like this simpler recipe. I used to dip my fried yams, plantains, potato and cocoyam in butter or margarine. Now, this is the real thing. Thank you, and I will always enjoy your articles.
