Oriental cooking is all about experimentation and the Yau's sauces have been created to make this as easy as possible. With their strong flavours and textures, many of the sauces are as suitable for stir-frying as they are for marinating.
"At Yau's it's all about the taste. From original recipes we've created a range of sauces that deliver on flavour and are truly authentic. Our aim is to inspire you in the kitchen with products that will allow you to create dishes that the whole family will love, and with minimal fuss. We've done the hard work, all you need are some basic ingredients, a hot wok and a little imagination!"
All sauces and pastes are suitable for VEGANS and are suitable for home freezing. Typical shelf life from purchase 10-12 months.
We all love a bit of Sweet and Sour, but do you know what goes into yours? We use only natural ingredients and no white sugar. Our vinegar is apple cider vinegar, and we use date paste for sweetness and citrus juices for a fruitier sourness.
Yau's Sweet and Sour sauce is great for adding to stir-fries, goes particularly well with chicken and prawns, but it's also fantastic with fish - dust some white fish fillets with flour before pan frying, add pineapple, onion and peppers, pour on the sauce and finish with strawberries just before serving!
As it's ready to eat straight from the jar, Yau's Sweet and Sour is a fantastic dipping sauce too. Dip spring rolls and dumplings, or pour over chips.
