Where I grew up in Las Vegas, or to be more specific Henderson, there were two things that were guaranteed to be on every corner - a Starbucks and a sushi restaurant. Most of the sushi restaurants have their pros but the best all-around is in my opinion I Love Sushi. It was right around the corner from my old high school and we used to eat there 3 times a week. Yes 3 times a week, I had a sushi addiction.

Therefore it was up to my own devices and some help from my sushi partner in crime, Amy, to create my own version of spicy ponzu sauce. Amy used to live in Las Vegas but has since moved to California, and while she has plenty of sushi restaurants to choose from she still misses the spicy ponzu sauce from I Love Sushi. Between the two of us we have been able to create a version of the sauce we love.
Ponzu is a Japanese citrus sauce served with sashimi, tempura, and rice, among other things.

Tip: Keep fresh ginger in the freezer, it stays fresh longer and is easy to grate into dishes. It grates so finely that you don't even need to peel it.
