Step 1

Zest your orange. This is most easily and effectively done with a Micro-Plane grater. If you've not discovered how great these are, you must get one!

Step 2

Step 3

Now juice the orange. You need ¼ cup.

Step 4

Make a screwdriver with the rest. :)

Step 5

Step 6

Put orange juice, zest, sake, sugar, soy sauce, lime juice, and cayenne into a saucepan.

Step 7

Step 8

Bring to a boil, turn down heat to a simmer, and reduce sauce by half for about 3 minutes.

Step 9

Step 10

Mix together the water and corn starch, add to the simmering sauce, and stir until thickened.

Note:

Step 15

Ponzu sauce keeps for a year and the longer you keep it, the better it tastes. It does not need to be refrigerated.

I had never had ponzu before and after making this, I will certainly be having it again! Delicious on some baked black cod. Looking forward to trying it on salmon.
