What is RAYU and what would I do with it?

bluedog | Nov 16, 200608:23 PM     10

I was at a Japanese-inspired restaurant the other day (as opposed to a Japanese restaurant), and we were served shrimp in a rayu-chili sauce. It was a tasty dish and I enjoyed it, but for the life of me I cannot figure out what "RAYU" is.

So, my question is, does anyone know what RAYU might be? And what would I do with it if I had it (aside from making shrimp in rayu-chili sauce)?
