Teriyaki is a method of cooking in Japan. This is the way to grill fishes or meats with sweet soy sauce, this sauce is called “Tare” in Japan.
Basic Tare of Teriyaki
This is very easy. Basic percentage is
Soy sauce : Sake : Mirin : Sugar = 2:2:2:1
Sugar can be controlled by yourself.
You maybe get Teriyaki sauce at some shops, but it’s wrong if you only put the sauce. To grill with Tare is important. Sometimes we add a ginger, or using honey instead of sugar, and if we don’t have Mirin, we use only Sake and Sugar.
More fatty will be good for Teriyaki, example Buri (= Yellowtail), Chiken. Yakitori and Kabayaki of Unagi (eel) are kinds of teriyaki, too.
