Sauces & Condiments

Sweet & Spicy Korean Chicken Sauce

Fried chicken has become a Korean staple. This sauce tastes similar to that from our favorite local restaurant Gala Chicken, which in turn reminds us of the amazing chicken we ate in Korea. Subtle hints of cinnamon and cardamom creates a mouthwatering aroma that we find especially irresistible.

General Tso’s Chicken Sauce

While honoring the Qing dynasty Hunan military leader Tso Tsung-t’ang, this spicy, sweet and sour dish was actually created in the USA and is one of the most popular dishes served in North American Chinese restaurants.

Orange Chicken Sauce (Panda Express Style)

We fell in love with this American-Chinese dish when we first moved to California twenty years ago. There is nothing like it in the Swedish variety of Chinese food. It is sticky and sweet with a distinct citrus flavor on top of crispy, yet tender fried chicken.

Basic Salsa

Salsa means sauce in Spanish and includes many different types. This one is reminiscent of the tomato based salsas sold in jars at the grocery store. You can experiment with flavors and add anything you like to this basic recipe. Great as a dip and on top of scrambled eggs!

Ssamjang (쌈장) / Korean Dipping Sauce

This cold sauce is delicious with grilled meat and chicken, or even by itself on top of rice wrapped in lettuce! The name means “wrap paste” since it is often used in bite sized wraps, in particular with grilled pork.

Liver Pâté

“Leverpastej” is one of my favorite sandwich spreads, especially on limpa, topped with a few slices of fresh or pickled cucumber. This is a simple and quick recipe with just a few ingredients.

Basic Gravy

This simple recipe turns your drippings into delicious sauce for your roasted poultry or meat.

Vinaigrette Dressing

Sweet, tart or spicy. A creamy vinaigrette makes any salad come to life. It takes less than five minutes to make, so why would you buy that watery stuff on the grocery store shelf?
