Clean eating or organic teriyaki sauce is not exactly a widely available item on grocery shelves. And conventional versions contain a list of some nastiest chemical lab ingredients: high fructose corn syrup, sodium benzoate and colour. Not to mention that 99%, if not 100%, of soy sauce, sugar and vinegar used in producing teriyaki sauce contain GMOs.
So, do not grab the jumbo pack of teriyaki sauce next time shopping at Costco. You can make a homemade organic teriyaki sauce without complicated ingredients like sake or mirin. Our clean eating version of honey teriyaki sauce is Americanized. Sake and mirin are different types of Japanese wine. Which we understand most Americans do not have in the pantry, and neither do we.
It takes about 5 minutes to make this honey teriyaki sauce at home. You can refrigerate it for weeks and use as a marinade as well. In fact, we whipped up baked teriyaki salmon that makes only 12 minutes in the oven.
Honey teriyaki sauce would also go really well with chicken, tofu, zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms etc. The longer you marinate, the bigger the flavours.
