Homemade Teriyaki Glaze
Have you ever gotten into a food rut? That place where you end up eating the same handful for dishes over and over because they are easy to make and everyone likes them. But after a while they lose their appeal and you get a craving for something a little different.
That’s have we are with Mexican and Italian cuisines lately. Love ’em but need a break every once is a while.
Enter this delicious Homemade Teriyaki Glaze inspired by A Cozy Kitchen’s Homemade Teriyaki Sauce. Any time I get a recipe idea or come up against a recipe I know I don’t have the knowledge to make I immediately jump online to research the bejesus out of it.
I looked at about a dozen different teriyaki concoctions but this slightly less sweet version appealed to me the most. I mixed it up a bit by adding a touch of fresh lime juice and a slash of mirin, but overall the recipe is spot on the original.
What is your favorite teriyaki recipe? I really think I am going to adapt this into a vinaigrette to top an Asian inspired spinach salad. Be sure to check out my Sweet and Sour Vinaigrette too!
