Servings: 2 servings
Prep Time12 hrs
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time12 hrs 15 mins


  • 2 tbs rice malt syrup
  • 3 tbs tamari
  • 3 tbs Japanese rice mirin
  • 1 tbs Japanese rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • pea sized piece of ginger root – finely grated
  • pinch chilli flakes – optional
  • a few sesame seeds to serve – optional
  • pinch nori flakes to serve – optional


  • Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together. Add meat, fish, bean curd or vegetables. Mix well to coat.
  • Heat a little oil in a frying pan. Lift the coated food using a slotted spoon to drain the excess sauce back into the bowl. Transfer to the pan and fry until cooked though.

  • Sprinkle your healthy teriyaki sauce dish with sesame seeds and nori (if liked). Serve immediately with noodles or rice and steamed greens.
