If you have ever wondered how to make teriyaki sauce then you will be really happy to know that it is incredibly quick and easy to make. If you don’t have fresh root ginger you can leave it out, but I love the wonderful flavour it imparts to the sauce. This delicious teriyaki marinade is such a trusty favourite of mine as it transforms any bland piece of meat into a feast for the senses for young and old alike.

This teriyaki marinade (or sauce) can be used in so many ways – I love it with chicken and beef strips. It makes the most delicious stir-fry sauce and it also tastes great with plain egg noodles or rice and I’ve even used it as a delicious dipping sauce for sushi.
