We Don’t Need No Stinking Bottled Teriyaki Sauce!

1 Cup of Premium Soy Sauce Try to get a Soy Sauce that has just Soybeans, Water, Wheat and Salt as ingredients, if you can.

1/4 cup fine chopped ginger

1/4 cup - finely chopped garlic

1/2 cup of Chinese Rice Wine, or a combination of Sake and Mirin. A dry white table wine like a Pinot Grigio (not an oaky Chardonnay) is fine if you can’t get any of these.

3 Tablespoons of Sugar (White or Brown, brown will give you more of a molasses flavor).

2 Scallions, Finely Chopped

Optional Components: Chopped Jalapeno Pepper or other mild chili, Chopped fresh Pineapple, Honey, Orange Juice.

Combine all ingredients into a saucepan. Cook on medium-high heat, stirring with wooden spoon until sauce just starts to stick to the back of the spoon. Taste for saltiness. Add more sugar, or Orange Juice to taste. Remove from heat. Add toasted sesame seeds or toasted sesame oil.
