Love Asian-style food but shudder at the huge amounts of sodium that come with store-bought bottles of sauce? It's scary. One 2-ounce serving often ratchets up 1,500 mg of sodium. That's more sodium than we should have for the entire day! Our Pritikin Asian Sauce, by contrast, has less than 30 mg of sodium per serving. Sure, this recipe is a lot of ingredients and a lot of time, but keep in mind that one batch can last a very long time because it freezes well. And it's a lot less expensive than store-bought brands.
