This Hawaiian Style Teriyaki Sauce makes me yearn for the islands, with flavors of ginger, honey and brown sugar. This goes nicely with chicken, steak, fish, vegetables, or rice.
- 1 Cup Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- 3 Cups Water
- Fresh Ginger Peeled and Cubed (~ 1" cube cut into quarters)
- 6 T Brown Sugar
- 6 T Honey
- 3 t Corn Starch
- 3 t Water (to mix with corn starch as a thickening agent)
- Put the soy sauce, 3 cups water, ginger into a medium pan over high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a gentle boil. Add the half the brown sugar and half the honey, and mix in.
- Mix the corn starch and 3 t water together until dissolved. Mix this into the soy sauce mixture, still keeping it at a gentle boil. Add the remaining sugar and honey. Continue boiling until it's been reduced by about 20%, then cool, remove from heat, and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
- The final sauce will ve a sweet and thick teriyaki sauce with hints of ginger, in the Hawaiian style of teriyaki.
Marinade chicken in this sauce for a few hours in a zip-lock bag, barbecue it, cut it up, and put over rice with cooked broccoli and onions.
Try marinating salmon and barbecuing for an excellent tasting salmon.
