This weekend will be a perfect BBQ weather in New York. Check out Chopsticks NY May issue (link in bio) to find easy recipes for Japanese-style homemade BBQ sauce.⁣

Oroshi Ponzu: mix daikon oroshi (grated daikon radish) with ponzu (soy-base sauce with dashi & citrus juice). It's bright and refreshing. [ph 2]⁣

Wasabi & Soy Sauce: pungent aroma and flavor of wasabi pairs well with powerful flavor of grilled meat. [ph 3]⁣

Sesame Oil & Salt: a classic dipping sauce in Japanese yakiniku restaurants, it has a nutty sesame aroma and rough salt texture. [ph 4]⁣

Creamy Sesame & Miso Sauce: rich and creamy, this sauce mildly embraces full-bodied meat. You can also add ginger for a kick. [ph 5]⁣

Infused Soy Sauce: soak kombu kelp for umami and your favorite dried fruits for sweetness. [ph 6]⁣
