Soy Sauce Pairings

After spending hours scouring recipe books and conducting tasting experiments, I've found the following flavor pairings all go well with Soy Sauce. Click on any match to view its flavor matches.

  • Avocado

    Why this pairing works:Avocado pairs well with strong robust flavors and soy sauce fits the bill perfectly. Its salty flavor draws out avocado's grassy notes and its deep complex flavors are enrichened by the buttery flesh.

    E.g. Poor man's sashimi.Like cheese, garlic and bacon, soy sauce is one of those lazy flavors which you end up reaching for whenever you end up with some bland dish. For that reason, I'm trying my best from listing any old flavor as a soy sauce match.

    However, avocado has definitely earned it's place as a soy sauce pairing and requires no effort to experience it. Simply pit an avocado and slice it into segments. Poor a little soy sauce in a small dish and If you have wasabi, mix a little into the soy sauce. Now just like you would with sashimi, dunk a segment of avocado into the soy sauce and eat.

    If, like me, you are too lazy for all this and the need for dishes and the washing up they require then cut an avocado in half, pit it, and pour soy sauce into it's recess and eat with a small spoon.
