This pesto makes a delicious dipping sauce for Japanese gyozas and other dumplings, spring rolls, and fresh summer rolls. I also use it to accompany seafood and to drizzle over vegetables.

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fish or oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mirin, honey, or agave

Place all ingredients in a mini food processor, and process until smooth, or to desired consistency, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if you prefer a thinner sauce.
