Teriyaki Sauce Recipe (Video)

Find out how to make a delicious teriyaki sauce full of flavour at home. Once you try it, you won’t buy any more jars of sauce.

After the holidays, when the pantry is empty and dinnertime is just around the corner, one of my favorite go-to in the fridge is teriyaki sauce.

Its versatility in the kitchen allows me to give a twist to frozen chicken breasts, a piece of salmon and even some eggplant.

In addition to being an easy and long-lasting recipe. You can keep it in the fridge for more than 1 month without spoiling. This sauce is healthier than store-bought versions. Commercial sauces are packed with sugar and corn syrup.

Teriyaki sauce in Japan

Surprisingly, in Japan, teriyaki (りき) refers to a cooking method. “Teri” (り) refers to shiny and “yaki” to the grill.

In other words, teriyaki is, in essence, any food cooked on the grill with a bright glaze. That’s why, in Japan, you’ll only find jars of teriyaki sauce in supermarkets if they’re imported.

For those of you who are willing to spend a little extra time on it, the recipe I’m sharing with you will provide you with a teriyaki sauce like no other.
