Maria’s Recipes: Pineapple Teriyaki Sauce

*Brown sugar x2 tablespoons

*Rice Malt Syrup x 3 tablespoons

*Soy Sauce x 3 tablespoons

*Pickled ginger x 1 teaspoon or 1/2 tsp minced ginger (fresh or from a jar)

*Pineapple, small chopped pieces x 1/2 cup (I used fresh, but if using canned, drain juice first).

*Cold water x 1/2 cup

*Cornflour x 1 teaspoon


-Heat soy sauce, syrup and sugar until bubbling (just a simmer).

-Add ginger, simmer for a minute.

-Add pineapple, simmer for a couple of minutes and taste, be careful not to burn yourself – it’s better to use a spoon and dip your finger quickly onto the spoon (with sauce) rather than putting the spoon into your mouth. If not sweet enough, add a little more Rice Malt syrup or some caster sugar.

-In a cup, combine cornflour and cold water, mix well until there are no lumps.

-Add cornflour mixture to saucepan with teriyaki sauce and stir. Mixture will thicken.

-Simmer until sauce is thickened. Turn off heat.

-Serve Pineapple teriyaki sauce over crumbed chicken or skewers of cooked chicken. Plain jasmine rice on the side goes well as a side dish and/or stir-fried vegies.
