Taiwanese BBQ  Shacha sauce

ChihYu Smith

Shacha sauce is a Taiwanese condiment for stir-fry and hot pot dipping sauce. My homemade version is easy and tastes fresher and healthier.

Let’s get started!

Start the pan & oil cold 


Add avocado oil with garlic, ginger, and shallot over low heat.

Add spices


Add in more spices with dried shrimp powder, shredded coconut flakes, salt, pepper.

Low heat simmer


Simmer the spices over low heat for 15-20 minutes and the sauce is ready!
