Ponzu (Rice Vinegar and Yuzu) Dressing

Adapted from The Japanese Kitchen by Hiroko Shimbo

Ponzu is made from the juice of yuzu, a Japanese citrus fruit. Its aroma and flavor might best be described as a combination of lemon, lime and grapefruit. If yuzu is not available, substitute these fruit juices. It won't be the same, but will still taste good. Ponzu is used as a dressing or sauce for grilled, sautéed or deep-fried fish, meat and vegetables.
