Hawaiian Style Teriyaki Sauce Recipe

Chicken and Rice with Hawaiian Teriyaki Sauce

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.

Hawaiian Style Teriyaki Sauce


  • 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)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
