To prepare a sauce for eel or rolls (like the Caterpillar Roll), use this method.
2 or 3 oz. of your favorite soy sauce
3 or 4 tablespoons of (powdered sugar)
Place both ingredients in a pot and heat to a slow rolling boil. Don't be to aggressive in your boiling, but just keep it under control and just reduce
the mixture to a thick consistency (your preference). During the reduction process, dip the tip of a spoon or one of your chopsticks and taste how sweet the sauce is. Add more powered sugar as needed for the level of your preferred sweetness. If it becomes too thick, just add a little water.
That's it; preparation time is about 10 minutes. I've seen it prepared this way in Sushi restaurants here in Seattle, WA and I've been doing it this way for over 10 years! Good Luck!
