We've made this several times and really enjoy it. Although the dipping sauce is good we always serve it with a side of wasabi and pickled ginger too.

  4. Garnish with black sesame seeds and serve with the following dipping sauce.
  5. Dipping Sauce:
    In a blender, combine all of the sauce ingredients. Blend for 30 seconds, then adjust seasoning with salt and white pepper to taste. (Do not substitute with black pepper).
  6. Pour sauce into serving bowls or small individual dip containers and serve with sashimi.
