Expert Tips

A "teriyaki" recipe simply means it has a marinade made from a mixture of soy sauce, sake (or sherry), sugar, ginger and seasonings. Beef, chicken and fish are commonly used, but you can add a tasty twist to this Japanese-inspired dish by using turkey.

Fresh gingerroot tastes best in this dish, but if you're out, use ground ginger instead. You can use 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of the dried spice in place of the fresh seasoning.
