Sweet Teriyaki Sauce

This Sweet & Thick Teriyaki Sauce is a great Asian sauce that works with almost any Asian food.

It works well as a baste for grilling things, and even a marinade.

It also works good on fish, making a plain fish (like mahi-mahi or salmon) more flavorful.

INGREDIENTS:

⅓ cup soy sauce

⅓ cup water

⅓ cup brown sugar

¼ cup avocado oil

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

 

DIRECTIONS:

In a small bowl, thoroughly mix all ingredients (except for cornstarch) together.

Pour mixture into a medium/small skillet over medium heat, and bring to a boil.

Put cornstarch into a small bowl. Pour a bit of the boiling mixture into the cornstarch bowl, and mix until homogeneous.

Pour the resulting substance back into the skillet, and stir until all combined. Boil a bit more, and then turn to low, and continue to cook, while stirring until the mixture becomes thick like syrup.

Remove from heat and use as a baste, and/or a sauce for your fish (salmon, mahi-mahi, etc.)

Store in the fridge, and heat before using.
