Teriyaki sauce is fantastic. It is sweet, tangy and full of flavour.

But, buying it ready-made can be very expensive and include unwanted extra sugar and additives.

The beauty of this recipe is that it is:

  • Extremely easy to throw together
  • A fantastic option to freeze
  • Completely customizable. Add more or less of the spices to get it exactly the way you like it

I love having batches of this in the freezer so that I have the option to just add it to meatballs, chicken, stir-fries or as a dip for fresh vegetables.

Give this recipe a try and make adjustments. Once you are happy, make larger batches and freeze them for later.
