Secrets of Asian Cooking (3-6)
Thin Soy Sauce
Soy sauce is made of fermented soy beans and the most popular that people recognize is Kikkoman Soy Sauce. Kikkoman is just 1 of thousands of brands of soy sauce.
Alot of brands use the full potency of the soy sauce and then just add water. Tehnically it would be correct and sold as thin soy sauce but there are brands out there that control the fermentation process to a shorter period thus cutting down the potency of the soy flavor.
Thin soy sauce was used as a dipping sauce, it was light and never over-powering. The brand I use is the "Healthy Boy Brand" on yellow label with a picture of a little boy.
It's use with dim sum dipping sauce or used to stir fry vegetables.
