If tahini is unavailable, substitute an equal amount of creamy peanut butter or almond butter. If using homemade Ponzu Sauce, note that it will need to be made a day in advance.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Makes about ¾ cup (185 ml)
½ cup (125 ml) Ponzu Sauce (page 26)
4 tablespoons sesame paste (tahini)
½ cup (125 ml) water
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
½ teaspoon minced garlic
1 green onion (scallion), thinly sliced
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
Pinch of salt, or more, to taste
Combine all ingredients in a small non-metal bowl and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes before using to allow the flavors to settle. Stir well before using.
