I like Tarter sauce on my
 shrimp, and any fish, but the store bought tarter sauce really sucks
 bad.  I make my own... homemade.
                      Toad's Tarter
    Put enough mayo in a bowl to cover how much sauce you want
 to make. To this mayo, add the following: Finely chopped green
 and red bell peppers, sweet onion, SWEET pickle relish, lemon juice,
 a little Wasabe, and some cracked black pepper.
       If you try this, you won't ever buy store bought tarter sauce again.
    It will make a lousy fish taste great, and a good fish taste
 fantastic. I urge you all to try it once...it's a winner.Big%20smile

Toad...
 
I hear you on finding a good Soy sauce.
 
This one is one of my favorites... http://www.alohashoyu.com/onlinestore/store.htm
 
My friend Ed grew up in Kalihi, Hawaii.  This company is owned by 3 Japanese families from there.
 
It's Shoyu... just like in Japan... but pronounced differently... "soy-you" (Hawaiian) instead of "show-you" (Japanese).

      This is  a post Mixey put up in another thread. I bought some
 of these products, and got them today. I bought the standard version
 of their soy sauce, and it is exactly what I was looking for.
    Everyone's tastes are different, and I won't attempt to say that
 one brand of soy sauce is better than your favorite, but after trying
 hundreds of these sauces, I was seeking a flavor that I remember
 from my youth.
       Back in the fifties, a company sold soy sauce in most all grocery
 stores in my area. The brand name was "Shoyu" . In the mid sixties,
 the company foulded up. I have been trying to find a replacement
 sauce like their's for YEARS. The Aloha brand, that Mixey turned me
 onto, is just what I was looking for.
      For my taste, this soy sauce pushes all my flavor buttons, and my
 search is OVER. To me, this is the REAL THING in soy sauces, and
 it's only one thing that I bought from the company. I also got
 two different fruit glazes for meat, that I will report on later.

          I wrote in a thread here about a sauce that is made in
 Michigan and it is quickly becoming a hit in a lot of resturants
 in the state.
        If you really enjoy a good prime rib, or french dip sandwich,
 you know that the critical thing is to have the natural Au Jus
 of the beef to go with the entre'e.
       If you really enjoy french onion soup,baked, with croutons,
 and cheese melted on top of the soup pottery, the main thing
 that will make it or break it is the broth.
      
For years I have been looking for a source to make a great
 homemade Au Jus for French dips and onion soup.
     I tried and tried, but Bouillon,beef broth, and beef bases
 were not the plan at all. They all were missing the natural
 Au Jus flavor that is sooo good.
      I went to a local resturant, and they served me a small
 metal dish of thin broth looking sauce, with a strip steak that
 I ordered.
      I asked the waitress about it, and was told it was "Zip" sauce.
  After more investigation, I found it at a local grocery store.
       Here's the info on this sauce: The web site is....
  www.originalzipsauce.com   or E-mail them at: zipsauce@yahoo.com
    If you are looking for a beef soup base, or a Au Jus sauce for
 steak dishes... you can't beat this stuff.
     I'm sure you can find many uses for this sauce to enhance
 any beef dishes, or even veggie dishes like fried rice.
     Go for it !

      I found a sauce to use on most all Asian dishes
 that you may be making.
         It is called: Maggi sauce, and comes in a shaker
 type small bottle that looks like soy sauce. It is very
 concentrated, and a little shake goes a long way.
     If you like stir-fry dishes with rice this sauce is
 a must to get that special flavor that you find in
  great Asian dishes found in the resturants.
     Give it a try...It's great !     MAGGI SAUCE

Reading this thread and getting hungry at almost 2 AM... JEEZ!

Malaysian Maggi sauce tastes better than US Maggi sauce, IMO... not sure why... probably loaded with MSG and we're all going to die a happy death. lol

There's also a cocktail made with Mexican beer and Maggi sauce that's interesting. I found it online.

Ingredients:
1/2 lime, preferably a Key lime
Coarse salt
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1 dash soy sauce
1 dash Tabasco sauce
1 pinch black pepper
1 dash Maggi seasoning, optional
12 ounces beer, preferably a dark Mexican beer like Negra Modelo.

Method
Squeeze the juice from the lime and reserve. Salt the rim of a highball glass by rubbing it with the lime and dipping it in coarse salt. Fill with ice. Add lime juice, Worcestershire, soy sauce, Tabasco, pepper and Maggi, if desired. Pour in beer, stir and serve, adding more beer as you sip.

Yield: 1 cocktail.

           Mixey,
        My chances of finding Malaysian Maggi sauce in
 Detroit ranks right up there with finding gold nuggets
 layin' in the street. Now you got me into a impossible
 quest to find some of this stuff.
       The version I found is made in China..like everything in Wal Mart.
       If you subsituted the Mexican dark beer in that
 cocktail for some decent Vodka and Clamato juice
 i think it would work for me, kinda like a full
 blown and injected Bloody Mary.
       Detroit's meat and potatos culture is quite
 differant than the East and West coast.
     Most exotic drinks around here come pre-mixed
 in a bottle or can. High-class stuff....

I wouldn't call my taste high class by any means Toad.

Here's the info on the Malaysian Maggi sauce:
Malaysian Maggi Sauce Press Release...

It's all Nestle now... originally Swiss made.

Tastes good for sure.
