This sauce can be used not only for fishballs, but also for squid balls, or kwek-kwek.


  • 2-3 cloves Garlic Chopped or minced
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 7 1/2 tablespoons Demerara brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Soysauce
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Iodized salt
  • A pinch Ground black pepper or to taste

Optional Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon red onions chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chili flakes or to taste ( i divide the sauce in half and put the chili flakes on one part only)


  • In a saucepan, mix all the ingredients until well blended
  • Put the saucepan on the stovetop. Turn on the stove to medium heat. Let it boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat and simmer for 4-6 minutes or until the sauce thickens


If you want the sauce to be spicy, divide the sauce into two bowls and add chili flakes on one part. You now have 2 bowls of fishball sauce. One is sweet and the other is sweet and spicy.
You may also add chopped red onions to taste.
