    I make a bit of Shrimp and have started making my own sauce to go with it. I am experimenting with Oyster Sauce mixed with Black Bean Sauce, to create a flavor.

    Anyone have experience with Asian sauce recipes?

    True: I don't really know wtf the stuff is, but some of it must be used in almost all chinese food. I had a bottle and ran out, began making stuff without it, and thought "Samson, WTF are YOU DOING!!!"

    WTF?

    Was there something about the Thread's Title "Asian Sauce Recipe" that confused you?

    I'd like to find the recipe for Cream of Sumyungai, which was mentioned in Wayne's World.

    The basic variety includes anise, cinnamon, fennel, cloves, and pepper. I have a rub which is a 12 spice version with the additions of cardamom, chipotle, cumin and some citrus flavoring - it's great for grilling.
