Teriyaki sauce is a Japanese sauce that is usually used to marinate or glaze meats and fish. It is mostly paired with grilled chicken, but it could be used when cooking in the oven, in a skillet on the stovetop, in a slow cooker, and stir-frying in a wok.
Teriyaki works very well as a dipping sauce and could be amazing when added to grilled vegetables as it adds a salty-sweet flavor to them.
Teriyaki is a sweet, tangy, and sticky sauce with a punch of salty umami flavor. Traditional teriyaki is soy sauce and mirin-based, and some recipes include adding garlic, ginger, citrus, and sesame to it.
Getting your hand on a bottle of teriyaki sauce is not hard as it is usually available in grocery stores and Asian markets. Still, if you have some soy sauce, mirin, and sugar at home, you can mix them together, and you just got yourself some traditional Japanese teriyaki.
The high sugar content in teriyaki makes it not only delicious, but it helps it coat the meats or vegetables with flavor, but it also means that it could burn quickly, so make sure to keep your eyes on your food when using this sauce.
While Japanese chefs usually use teriyaki when cooking fish and seafood and teriyaki chicken is a staple menu in Japanese restaurants. You can add the teriyaki flavor to any meat or vegetable you cook, or you can use it as a flavor enhancer to your favorite Asian dish.
