| There's a sweet salty teriyaki sauce that my mother used to purchase, when I was growing up. I wish I knew what the brand was, because I love it and miss it (not that I could eat it!). This sauce is my attempt to recreating that taste sensation. The taste is excellent!|
It's somewhat thick, sweet, salty and a little tangy. It looks almost like a teriyaki glaze, and can be dipped into as such. It can be used to marinate, toss veggies in, add to rice, etc. It's great for all your teriyaki needs. I make a big batch of it, about once every 3 months and put it in a jar that rattles around my fridge. It seems to last forever!
Important Note: This does not have sugar in it. So, while it looks thick enough and is sweet enough, it doesn't have the actual same properties that sugar does. It won't caramelize and give you those great flavors and textures on a grill. It's a little odd, like that, but ... it's still pretty wonderful!
Recipe makes about 2 ½ cups, or about forty (1 tbsp) servings.
