I have to give full credit for this recipe to my hubby, Mr. Hippie. He has been experimenting with teriyaki sauces for a while. One day shortly after I saw the spice featured this month was citrus he mentioned making teriyaki again. I decided that citrus would be the perfect addition to teryiaki. I was right.
This recipe is so delicious and so simple that anyone can (and should) try it.
- 1 T. minced onion
- 1 T. olive oil
- 1 C. soy sauce
- 1/4 – 1/2 C. Champion Hill Farm honey
- zest of one clementine
Caramelize onion in olive oil in small sauce pan.
Add 1 cup soy and reduce heat.
Stir in honey 1 tablespoon at a time tasting for sweetness after each tablespoon. Stir until dissolved.
Add zest of one clementine.
Turn off heat and let steep until cool.
Add about 1/3 of this marinade to chicken, pork or whatever you want to Teriyaki-ize and marinate for several hours or overnight. Reserve remaining sauce in freezer for future use.
Remove meat from sauce and sear on all sides. Add marinade to pan and simmer until cooked through. Serve with rice and vegetables (or whatever else you have on hand). I actually served it with ramen noodles and mixed vegetables.
