Guava Sauce

Yield About 3/4 cup (serving size: 1 tablespoon)
Try this as a salad dressing or as a marinade for pork, chicken, or fish. Guava paste is about an inch-thick block wrapped in cellophane in a 16-ounce package. It is sold in Latin markets and large supermarkets. Store any unused product in the refrigerator because it is easier to cut when chilled.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots
  • 3 ounces (about 1/3 cup) commercial guava paste, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
