Teriyaki Sauce Recipes



How to make homemade teriyaki sauce, uses for teriyaki  sauce plus lots of recipes using Teriyaki Sauce.


The word teriyaki actually refers to a specific type of cooking method, rather than just the name of a sauce. The word is made up of the noun teri, which refers to a shine or lustre of the tare (sauce), and yaki which refers to the cooking method of grilling/broiling. Traditionally meat is dipped into or basted with the sauce before and during cooking.

The sauce is traditionally made by mixing and heating soy sauce, sake or mirin, and sugar or honey which is heated then allowed to cool. It can be further boiled to reduce it to a thicker consistency if required.

This mixture is then used to marinate or baste various ingredients including fish, particularly the more robust  flavoured fish such as tuna, salmon or mackerel, poultry, seafood such as prawns, meats such as pork, beef and lamb, and tofu. It can also be served cold as a dipping sauce, as in bento menus, with tempura or with sushi, and can be flavoured with additional ingredients such as ginger, sesame or garlic.

Below is a link to a video and written recipe showing you exactly how to make teriyaki sauce at home in just 5 minutes plus more recipes specifically using teriyaki sauce. However, it should be noted that if a recipe calls for soy sauce, you can often substitute it with teriyaki sauce. It is also excellent added to western style recipes such as barbecue sauces, marinades and dips so it's well worth making your own.
