Gochujang Yum Yum Sauce

Updated: Aug 14, 2022

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.


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.
