Sake Lime Vinaigrette – 20 Calories

The Grand Wailea Resort and Spa in Maui offers a legendary menu of Pacific Rim cuisine.  This dressing is served with its Ahi Tuna entrees, but it melds nicely with any lighter-fare seafood salad because a little bit goes a long way, which is usually the case with intensely flavored, sharp flavors.  You’ll use less if your tastebuds are “alive” with sufficient flavor.  We like this drizzled over sashimi, sushi, and canned albacore tuna flakes, in place of mayonnaise.

Sake Lime Vinaigrette

Recipes: Condiments
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled, or 2 teaspoons ginger juice
  • 2 tablespoons sake
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or sugar alternative
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons Thai chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (sweet rice wine) or dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  1. Grate the ginger into a piece of cheesecloth and twist to squeeze out 2 teaspoons of juice, or, use bottled unsweetened ginger juice.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the ginger juice and all remaining ingredients together until blended.
  3. Store in an airtight bottle in the fridge for up to 3 days.
If you have access to bottled ginger juice, by all means use it -- we love Ginger People juice, available in specialty markets, usually in the Asian foods aisle. Thai chili sauce can be found in the same aisle. This recipe makes approximately 1 cup of dressing, with only a little bit needed to drizzle over entrees and salads. An average serving of 1-2 tablespoons is 20 calories, 3g carbs, 0.5g fat.
