Uses for ponzu

I'm a newbie to Japanese cuisine for the most part but love what I've tried, so I picked up a bottle of high-quality unfiltered ponzu as an impulse buy. It seems like all the recipes I've found are for ponzu + shoyu dipping sauces. Are there any other uses?

Ponzu sauce is usually yuzu juice, mirin, dashi and shoyu (soy sauce). The stuff you got is only missing the shoyu. It's primarily a dipping sauce for tempura, sashimi, grilled seafood. It would probably make a light salad dressing (which you might need to add some salt or shoyu for seasoning). But it's primary use is as a sauce, dipping or otherwise. I like grilled or fried fish with a drizzle of ponzu sauce.

Use it as a base for a marinade/grilling sauce.
Line up some shrimp like this with two skewers =))))))= coat with mixture of ponzu, shoyu, garlic and oil. Let it sit about 40 mins. Then grill.
Serve with a dipping sauce of more ponzu, soy, onion, garlic, and ginger juice wisked in a mini-prep or blender. (adjust taste with a touch of sugar and lime/lemon juice).

I add it to my stirfries and I also pour it over raw fish. It just adds a nice tart flavor it can add acid in a pinch. It's great!
