Oyster sauce substitution?

  • 2

I could have sworn that I had oyster sauce. I have hoisin sauce & okonomiyaki sauce - which would be a better substitute? I don't want to run to the store when all I need is 1 1/2 Tbs for a sauce that already has soy sauce included. I am leaning towards the okonomiyaki - yes?

  1. the oko may be too sweet but not as sweet as the hoisin . . . . you just need a pinch of MSG along with the oko!
