What does Teriyaki taste like?
Teriyaki has a deep umami taste which comes from the soy sauce, with a little sweetness from the wine and sugar. 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. Literally… ‘teri’ means ‘glaze or shine’ and ‘yaki’ means ‘to grill’ in Japanese.
What is Teriyaki made from?
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.
How do you use Teriyaki?
Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade couldn’t be easier to use - simply pour half a bottle 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.
