Yum Yum Sauce is the best name ever, and what is often served at Japanese hibachi restaurants, and also, as I found out last weekend, at fun hipster restaurants with ethnic fusion food.
If you eat a vegan diet, you could use vegan mayonnaise and substitute coconut oil for the butter. The coconut oil would add a light coconut flavor, but it would still work here. And whatever your diet, if you’d like to add a smoky flair, try using smoked paprika instead of paprika! It adds a complex undertone that’s a nice touch.

However, here are a few notes about Yum Yum sauce ingredients. It’s a mayonnaise-based sauce, with the next two ingredients being melted butter and tomato paste (or ketchup). We experimented with removing the butter in this one, but it tasted very strongly of mayo. Adding the butter helps to smooth out the sauce, so we would not suggest omitting it. This dish, typically calls for sugar, but we substituted it with maple syrup to keep it naturally sweet. Round it out with some garlic powder and paprika, and it’s done! Delicious and truly easy.
Yum yum sauce is everyone’s favorite Japanese steakhouse sauce! You can mix it with fried rice or dip your seafood, vegetables or steak in this delicious sauce! It is so simple to make at home that now you can eat Yum Yum Sauce on everything you want. You can even use it as a salad dressing or with your next vegetable platter.
