Homemade Teriyaki Sauce is a Year Round Comfort Flavor
December! Tis’ the season for having dinner guests. I know a lot of people busy themselves making elaborate holiday and Christmas-y foods this time of year but sometimes the best-loved dishes to serve to guests are the ones we all crave year round.
Why Homemade Teriyaki Sauce?
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 clean sauce takes just 5 minutes.
The recipe below has no refined sugar. 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.
How Long Does Homemade Teriyaki Sauce Last?
You can make the Teriyaki sauce up to a week in advance and store it in the fridge in a mason jar. The sauce is great to keep around the holiday season when you are always crunched for time because it enables you to throw together a delicious meal in minutes.
Try Baked Salmon Teriyaki
My favorite recipe using the sauce is this one for Baked Salmon Teriyaki. Whether I’m making the salmon or chicken, I usually add a side of brown rice and steamed broccoli.
Then, I top everything off with sliced pineapple, sesame seeds and scallions. So easy! And so super good, if I do say so myself 😉Print
