I am obsessed with Japanese food. The flavours are amazing and there is so much more to Japanese food than just sushi. Katsu, gyoza, curry the list is endless. But I love teriyaki especially. Tofu coated in teriyaki sauce then fried is amazing but it also makes a delicious dip for dumplings.
My recipe for simple homemade teriyaki sauce is quick and easy to make so whether you’re a seasoned cook or barely step foot in the kitchen this sauce should be a cinch to make. Made with store cupboard basics it is cheap to make too. No hard to find ingredients here so a trip to your local chinese supermarket is all that’s necessary and its also vegan . This is usually made with honey but for health and ethical reasons I’ve replaced that with agave nectar.
- 200ml sake
- 200ml mirin
- 200ml soy sauce
- 100ml agave nectar
Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl.
Place the mixture into a saucepan.
On your hob place the saucepan on a medium heat and bring the pan to the boil. When liquid is boiling turn the cooker down to low and let simmer for ten minutes or until sauce thickens to a syrupy consistency.
Store in an airtight jar in the fridge. This will keep for two-three weeks.
