Togarashi Sauce

Togarashi is a Japanese spice mixture. I am not sure of all that is in it, but there is a blend of chilies, sesame seeds, citrus...mmm, I will have to work on the rest of it. I am not sure of ALL the ingredients listed in Japanese.
This sauce has a little heat, and a little sweet! It pairs well with lots of Asian dishes.
In a future post, I will share a shrimp potsticker recipe but today I hit Trader Joe's and they had potstickers ready to go in the freezer section.

Togarashi Sauce with Potstickers
3/4 cup mayonnaise or Vegenaise
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
1 1/2-2 Tablespoons honey
3-4 teaspoons Togarashi
1 teaspoon Sambal Oelek
1 Tablespoon Mirin

Mix all ingredients together until well combined.
Best if flavors are allowed to meld for a few hours in the refrigerator.
Serve as a dipping sauce or put in a squeeze bottle and drizzle over top.
