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.

β…“ cup water

β…“ cup brown sugar

ΒΌ 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.

French Toast

French Toast a great way to change the weekly ‘pancake’ routine; and it serves as a simpler substitute. Whisk up the wet ingredients; dip the bread in; fry the bread; that’s pretty much what French Toast is–simple and good–depending on what bread you use.

INGREDIENTS: (SERVES 6)

4 eggs

3/4 cups milk

12 pieces of thick bread

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice

2 teaspoons vanilla

 

DIRECTIONS:

Heat your griddle to 400 degrees. Spray with non-stick spray. Put all the ingredients (not including bread) into a wide bowl, and whisk until thoroughly combined.

Place pieces of bread one at a time into the bowl, and coat with the mixture on both sides. Then place bread onto heated and oiled griddle.

Let the bread sizzle until it is almost completely brown on the other side (see pic), then flip and fry on the other side. Serve hot; with syrup, and other optional toppings.
