Sichuan Dipping Sauce for Dumplings.....or anything!!

Using some authentic Sichuan ingredients, this sauce is reminiscent of the side dish of spicy sauce served with Sichuan Hot Pot. It also is a far step above the typical pot-sticker sauce and side dish of spicy oil served at most American style Chinese restaurants.

1 T Chili Bean Paste, preferably a Sichuanese brand found in Chinese markets
1 T Sichuan Green Chili Oil
1/2 Sesame oil
1 T Shaoxing Rice Wine or Sherry
2 t scallions, green and white parts, finely choppped
2 t ginger, finely chopped
2-3 T soy sauce

Combine all ingredients. Sauce holds for approximately 2 weeks refrigerated.

Thanks for this recipe! I spent 4 weeks in Chengdu, Sichuan province, a few summers ago, and didn't know how to replicate the flavors I had experiences.
