Yum Yum sauce is a hibachi sauce that is served at Hibachi Restaurants. It is a blend of mayonnaise, ketchup, rice vinegar, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

- Soy Sauce Substitution – You can substitute soy sauce for coconut aminos.
How to Reheat Hibachi Fried Rice:
To reheat Hibachi fried rice place in a microwave safe dish and reheat. I usually heat in 1 minute intervals until thoroughly heated.
