Teriyaki Marinade

Teriyaki MarinadeTeriyaki Marinade

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.
