Yum Yum Sauce

Ever since I first tried yum yum sauce at a Hibachi restaurant I’ve wanted to make it at home. It’s absolutely delicious! We especially like it over fried rice or for dipping shrimp, but it even makes a yummy hamburger sauce or dipping sauce for French fries.

The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Homemade Yum Yum Sauce (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • Mayonnaise – use any mayonnaise you like.
  • Ketchup
  • Granulated sugar – be aware that as the sauce chills the sugar will melt into the sauce, making it look a bit separated. This is normal and is fixed with a quick stir.
  • Paprika
  • Rice vinegar – you could also use white vinegar or apple cider vinegar.
  • Garlic powder
  • Water – the water is used to thin the sauce to the right consistency.
