2 Easy Recipes for Teriyaki Sauce Homemade
These are my two favorite recipes to use when you have a jar of sauce in the fridge begging to be used.
Recipe #1: Try Our Baked Salmon Teriyaki
My favorite recipe using the sauce is this one for Baked Salmon Teriyaki. If you are trying to eat clean then you absolutely want to make sure to go with wild salmon. When it comes to salmon and choosing the healthiest fish, going wild makes the world of difference. Especially if you are trying to follow an anti-inflammatory diet. Wild salmon has considerably more anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats and much less pro-inflammatory omega-6 fats.
Recipe #2: Chicken Teriyaki Kabobs
These perfectly (and naturally sweetened) Chicken Teriyaki Kabobs are easy to make and perfect for entertaining or a simple dinner.
