There’s nothing like the great taste of barbecued food to make you feel good. But make sure you use top-quality ingredients for the best results. Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade will bring a delicious taste of the Orient to your barbecue food and make your meat and fish shine! Literally… ‘teri’ means ‘glaze or shine’ and ‘yaki’ means ‘to grill’ in Japanese.

While the taste of teriyaki has grown in popularity in the UK over recent years, it actually has a long history, dating all the way back to the 17th century when Japanese cooks used it to marinade meat and to baste during cooking. Teriyaki-infused meat gives off wonderful aromas during cooking and leaves a polished glaze to the finished dish.

Nowadays, it easy to cook authentic teriyaki dishes at home - a bottle of Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade is all you need. The carefully selected blend of naturally brewed soy sauce, wine and spices is pure convenience in a bottle, no other seasonings are needed.

And it couldn’t be easier to use - simply pour half a bottle of Kikkoman Teriyaki over whatever foods you fancy. Lamb chops, beef steaks, chicken thighs and salmon work really well, as do vegetables such a courgette and aubergine, and leave to marinate for as little as 30 minutes, or as long as you have. Then enjoy the wonderful aromas as it cooks to a glossy gold on the barbecue griddle.
