I love Teriyaki Sauce. I love it on salmon. I love it on chicken. I love it on stir-fry. And I love it on burgers!

I don’t love all the extras in bottled sauce on the grocery store shelf. So I thought I should just make my own teriyaki sauce recipe.

All in all, making my own seems like a pretty brilliant idea.

And you know what? It was effortless, just like salad dressing. I don’t understand why condiments are so intimidating. The more I make them, the more I realize I don’t even need to hit that aisle when shopping. Our food is just getting better and better.
