Teriyaki
Teriyaki (kanji: 照り焼き; hiragana: てりやき) - A cooking technique used in Japanese cuisine in which foods are broiled or grilled in a sweet soy sauce marinade (tare in Japanese). Teriyaki is served in most modern Japanese cuisines.

Fish—yellowtail, marlin, skipjack tuna, salmon, trout, and mackerel—is mainly used in Japan, while meat—chicken, pork, lamb and beef—is more often used in the West. Other ingredients sometimes used in Japan include konjac and squid.

The word teriyaki derives from the noun teri (照り, teri), which refers to a shine or luster given by the sugar content in the tare, and yaki (焼き, yaki), which refers to the cooking method of grilling or broiling. Traditionally the meat is dipped in or brushed with sauce several times before and during cooking.

The tare is traditionally made by mixing and heating soy sauce, sake or mirin, and sugar or honey. The sauce is boiled and reduced to the desired thickness, then used to marinate meat which is then grilled or broiled. Sometimes ginger is added, and the final dish may be garnished with green onions.

Teriyaki can also be served cold, as it often is in bento menus.
