When I’m super busy I like to marinate meats overnight and cook them the next day. One of my favorite marinades is Teriyaki Marinade. Japanese foods marinated in sake-flavored soy sauce to which sugar has been added and then broiled or roasted make a quick and tasty dinner. The sugar imparts a glaze to the cooked foods. Marinate seafood for about 30 minutes. Marinate meats and poultry for several hours or overnight before cooking.
1 Cup Soy Sauce
1 Cup Sake
1/3 Cup Sugar
In a medium size bowl combine the soy sauce, sake and sugar. Pour over desired seafood or meat and marinate. When ready to cook remove from the marinade and discard. I always like to make extra marinade to brush on whatever meats I am cooking.
