  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce


  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse/puree until a chunky consistency is achieved. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
  • Serve with a salad, vegetables, steak, shrimp or pour over rice/grains.


  • This sauce can be enjoyed immediately but will taste even better after a day of marinating!
  • If you don’t own a food processor, you can easily grate the onion and ginger by hand.
  • If at all possible you will want to use fresh ginger. Substitute ground ginger only if needed.
