Teriyaki is a quintessential sweet and savory Japanese sauce that can easily be made by combining soy sauce and mirin in a 1:1 ratio. The quality of the soy sauce ensures the right balance of umami without being overly salty.
Cook time: 10 mins | Servings: 1-2
- Sprinkle the chicken with salt and fry in a pan until cooked.
- Mix in the soy sauce and mirin. Heat over low until the alcohol evaporates from the mirin (just prior to boiling, roughly 1 min). Make sure the chicken is coated in the sauce and serve.
- Use sake combined with a bit of sugar instead of mirin.
- Combine with your favorite seasonal vegetables to make a stir fry.
