Asian-inspired Shrub Dipping Sauce No. 1
  • 1/3cup soy sauce
  • 6tbsp Spiker’s Sour Cherry Plum Shrubor any other flavor
  • 1 fresh lime, squeezedplease don’t use bottled juice
  • 1tbsp sesame oil
  • 2-3tbsp vegetable or chicken brothor water
  1. Place soy sauce in a 2-cup bowl or container.
  2. Add the lime juice, Tuscan Tangerine Shrub, sesame oil, and fresh lime juice. Swirl together vigorously to incorporate the oil.
  3. Taste the sauce, and add vegetable or chicken broth one teaspoon at a time until the flavor suits your taste. (The goal is to soften the intensity of the soy and lime without silencing them altogether.)
Recipe Notes

NOTE: The use of vegetable or chicken stock isn’t traditional, but we think it helps to cut back on some of the intense saltiness imparted by the soy sauce.
