Whether used as a dipping sauce or as a marinade, this oyster sauce adds a slightly sweet, totally authentic Asian flavor. It is a rich, concentrated mixture of oyster extract, soy sauce, brine and seasonings. It is thick, salty and strong! I love using it to enhance the flavor of my different Asian and Thai dishes! I also love to mix it with a little sesame oil and soy sauce to use as dipping sauce for my dumplings!!
