Common dipping sauces
I'm going to break the sauces down into two categories: must haves and must makes.

Must haves. There are some sauces that you should stock up on and keep in your pantry. These sauces are relatively cheap and can be found at most Asian markets or regular grocery stores.

Must makes. There are some sauces that you might be able to find yourself but are very easy to make if you can't find them and you have the time to do a little prep work before heating up the wok.

Here is a fairly comprehensive list of sauces, including all of the ones above. If you would like a recipe for any of the ones I didn't do already, juts email me and request it - I'll add it to this page.
