This is a recipe I have been making for 40+ years. You can add other spices, chopped olives, or even sliced pepperoni. If I don't have tomato sauce on hand, I have used diced tomatoes. On a few occasions when there was not time to bake it, I did it all on the stove top and mixed everything together. The kids and grandkids never mind and it all gets eaten.

Weekly Specials from The Prepared Pantry 

Simple Ginger Soy Marinade Recipe

This marinade works well with chicken, pork, fish or tofu.I like a lot of ginger in the marinade, which will also contribute a spicy hum to your dish. If this is not to your liking, use less ginger.

This recipe is sufficient to marinate 500 - 700g (ABOUT 1 1/2LB ) of meat. You can marinate larger amounts but the flavours may not be as strong in the cooked product.
1/3 cup (80ml) mirin
1/4 cup (60ml) tamari or light soy sauce
1-1/2 Tablespoons (30ml) toasted sesame oil
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 to 1-1/2 Tablespoons (20ml - 30ml) grated ginger
1 chilli, chopped {optional}

Measure all of the ingredients into a glass jar with a lid.
Replace the lid and shake the jar to combine the ingredients.
Use as desired.

This marinade can be frozen in small containers, or place some meat in freezer safe containers, add your marinade and freeze.

Sugar Free Teriyaki Sauce Recipe

60ml (1/4 cup) tamari or light soy sauce
60ml (1/4 cup) mirin
60ml (1/4) sake
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

Combine the ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring the sauce to the boil, and simmer gently for 5 - 10 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced by 1/3. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Strain the sauce into a glass jar, and use immediately or store in the fridge until required.

I do not strain out the garlic and ginger first if I am using this sauce as a marinade. Have been using this sauce in beef and chicken stir fries with much success, have yet to try it with fish.
Makes 1/2 cup
