Hoisin Sauce Recipe

Posted on 16 June 2009 by ChefBud

I absolutely love Peking Duck. It is not possible for me to pass a shop in China Town with crispy ducks hanging in the window without stopping in for this imperial Chinese classic.  What is not to love: roasted duck with thin crispy skin, green onions, and hoisin sauce all rolled up in a thin Chinese pancake.  Here is a quick simple recipe for that yummy hoisin sauce.

Hoisin sauce, also called suckling pig sauce, is a Chinese dipping sauce used for Peking duck, spring rolls, mu shu pork, popiah and barbecued pork.

    With all due respect, this recipe is a very western take on a Chinese condiment. There never, ever, any tomato in Hoi Sin Jeung – sacrilege!! The central ingredient is fermented red bean paste – similar to miso – and seasonings include cassia bark & star anise amongst others. The sweetness & texture comes from using maltose.
