WF/GF Teriyaki Sauce

Teriyaki chicken is by far Joshua's favorite food. We learned this while completing a food trial before a GI scope. Unfortunately, it gives him terrible hives (because of the wheat in the soy sauce). I feel terrible depriving him of one of the few foods he devours, so I went in search of GF Teriyaki Sauce. I was hoping that San-J would make one in a bottle, similar to their wheat free soy sauce, but they don't. What I did find was a great recipe using the San-J WF soy sauce.

WF/ GF Teriyaki Sauce

1/2 cup GF soy sauce (San-J Tamari sauce)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp oil
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/2 clove garlic
1 tsp dry ginger

Mix well and let set for 20-30 minutes. Refrigerate and store unused portion.

(I found this recipe here)

I made this for his Birthday dinner last night and he LOVED it. So did my 4 year old and my husband. I will definitely be keeping this one on hand!!!

Hi Leah,

After being diagnosed a Celiac a few months ago, I have been on the trail of a good Teriyaki sauce in a bottle ever since!

Teriyaki sauce is my favorite sauces too but finding one ready made in a bottle is difficult to locate but I did find one! San J does make one but it isn't as good as the one you have posted. It has a slightly off taste but is OK in a pinch. I will give your recipe a try and see how I like it.

My other food item to stay away from is tomatoes and anything that has it in it's ingredients! So there goes the catsup, cocktail sauce and BBQ sauce too! But I did find a "Nomato" sauce online, made a few tweaks to it and by god, it's really a close resemblance to the real thing! Things can be difficult but not impossible if we keep trying!

Thanks for the recipe!
