Lemons are wonderfully fruity and refreshing. Their taste is reminiscent of summer and is often combined with other aromas. Ponzu, one of the most popular seasoning sauces in Japanese cuisine, is characterised by a fresh citrus note. As a traditional Japanese company, Kikkoman relies on this hit from Japan and enriches especially light dishes with its delicious own creation – Kikkoman Ponzu Lemon.
Culinary liaison: soy sauce and citrus aroma
Our Ponzu Lemon is based on Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce and a little lemon. Thanks to this aromatic combination and a tasteful balance of sweetness, acidity and spiciness, it brings a certain freshness into salads, snacks and various main courses. In Japan, Ponzu is also often used with traditional stews, sashimi or as topping for Takoyaki, a typical Japanese street food. Simply add a few splashes of the liquid sauce to your ingredients – Ponzu ensures a real taste explosion on your tongue.
