Yum yum sauce is a creamy, spicy condiment often served in Japanese steak houses. My version uses gochujang (Korean chili paste) and kimchi for a deeper, tangier flavor. It's incredible as a dipping sauce for musubi, like the black cod version from Enoki Eatery in Sitka pictured below, alongside a beautiful salad.
GOCHUJANG YUM YUM SAUCE
Makes about 1 ½ cups
½ cup plain, full-fat Greek yogurt
½ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon gochujang (Korean chili paste)
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce or sriracha (I like Huy Fong brand)
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch of sugar
2 tablespoons good kimchi
Blend everything in a food processor until smooth.
