Why We Make Teriyaki Sauce Homemade

Of course you can’t make Teriyaki anything without a delicious and robust sauce. Unfortunately, conventional Teriyaki sauce is filled to the brim with refined sugar. On the bright side, making a delicious teriyaki sauce homemade takes just 5 minutes.

Our recipe has no refined sugar because it is primarily sweetened with pureed pineapple and dates. And it tastes every bit as sweet as the more conventional versions.

Actually, it’s much better. Just trust me on this one.

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.

I’ve got only dried ginger, would that substitute alright for fresh, or will it change the taste too much?

Yes, but you won't need as much -- use about 1/2 the amount of the recipe and do a taste test -- add more at your own liking. Keep me posted and I can update the recipe card with the dried ginger option!
