We have to double it, but we have 4 kids. This is a great sauce, I ended up having to make my own sesame seed oil as I didn't have enough. But it was worth it. Very tasty.

Don't know what kind of blender you have but this amount would only smear my blender but never reach the blades :( How about a recipe where you can make a cup's worth and have it for next time?

Amazing! Only suggestion is that you make a double portion.

I make this regularly, whenever I make 'Turkey Duck pancakes' with a couple of minor changes. I add an extra tbsp of peanut butter to thicken it a little, an extra couple of teaspoons of sugar as I don't find it quite sweet enough, and I also add half a teaspoon of Chinese 5 spice. Thanks for the recipe!

Apologies, the black pepper is indeed in your own recipe.

This one is the same as my own copy from apart from an additional 1/8th tsp of black pepper!

Apologies if I'm being thick, but when you say Hot Sauce, exactly what kind of sauce is it? Hot just tells me, 'Don't buy Mild'. Thanks
