Keto Yum Yum Sauce

Keto Yum Yum Sauce

This Keto Yum Yum sauce is sweet, tangy, and perfectly spiced. It’s a low carb version of a classic Japanese steakhouse sauce. Best of all, it can be whipped up in 5 minutes. It’s delicious on just about everything – egg roll in a bowl, cauliflower fried rice, shrimp cakes, crab cakes, grilled meats, as a fry sauce, and even as a salad dressing. It literally goes with just about everything.

Ingredient notes

Ingredients for keto yum yum sauce - ketchup, mayo, paprika, butter, sweetener, garlic, onion, vinegar
  • Mayonnaise – This is the base for this low carb yum yum sauce and makes it rich and creamy. I like to start with a homemade mayo. Check out my Easy Peasy 2 Minute Mayo Recipe
  • Ketchup – For this recipe I used Primal Kitchen ketchup (code PEACE for 10% off). It is only 2 grams of carbs per serving. You can also substitute tomato paste.
  • Paprika – I recommend using a sweet paprika. Using a smoked paprika will completely change the flavor profile.
  • Sriracha – This just adds a hint of spiciness. If you are not a fan of spice, feel free to omit it. Alternatively, you can use the hot sauce of your choice or a pinch of cayenne pepper.
  • Butter – Don’t skip the butter! This is what takes it to the next level and helps replicate a more traditional Japanese hibachi sauce recipe.
  • Sweetener – I used a powdered monkfruit in this recipe, but you can use any sweetener you prefer.
