WHAT IS TERIYAKI?
Everyone loves it! But what exactly makes something Teriyaki?
Teriyaki – テリヤキ – is a Japanese cooking technique where meat or fish is cooked with a trio of ingredients that creates a sweet and savory glaze. In fact, calling teriyaki a glaze is probably more accurate than calling it a sauce.
And while teriyaki chicken is probably the most iconic and well known preparation, you can use shrimp, beef, tofu… or, well, pretty much anything you’d like to coat in that perfect glossy concoction.
HOW TO MAKE TERIYAKI SAUCE
Soy sauce, mirin and sugar are combined and, when heated, form a glaze that thickens and coats the protein. How’s that for easy!?
Well, it’s absolutely delicious as well – and is one of the most famous flavor combinations Japan ever exported!
