Soy-Free Soy Sauce

paleo soy sauce

Finding a Paleo-approved soy sauce is a must for all Asian dishes, especially sushi.  This soy-free soy sauce is a great replacement; I can’t even tell a difference between this sauce and regular soy sauce.  It’s super simple to make, perfect for dipping or sauteing, and completes any Asian-inspired meal.



  • 1/4 cup Coconut Aminos
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • Optional: pinch of wasabi


  1. Combine the Coconut Aminos, fresh lemon juice, sesame oil and wasabi, if desired, into a shallow bowl.
  2. Mix well.

Enjoy with homemade sushi rolls like we did during our Paleo Sushi Night.  They were delicious.

    That’s impossible. How can you have soy sauce without soy. Have to be some kind of sorcery.

      I have been known to dabble in sorcery from time to time. Have you tried it? I don’t notice a difference.
