The fruity taste of hoisin sauce and the sharp-earthy flavor of garlic wed perfectly in this sauce. It is rich and spicy, and a real kitchen favorite. Minus the garlic, the sauce can be refrigerated indefinitely. We always keep the garlic-less mixture on hand, then add the garlic only as needed.
In a mortar with a pestle, pound the garlic cloves with the salt to a fine paste. Combine with all of the remaining ingredients until well blended.
