When it comes to Asian cooking, there is one ingredient that is indispensable in my pantry: soy sauce. I use soy sauce on a daily basis, making everything from Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Southeast Asian dishes, to soups and salads.
I use it as a seasoning sauce, marinade, glaze as well as dipping sauce. Soy sauce is probably my favorite sauce in the whole world and one of the recipes I love most with soy sauce is chicken teriyaki.
My love affair with soy sauce means that I am constantly in search of the perfect bottle of naturally brewed, non-GMO, and the highest quality soy sauce available. I have a couple of brands that I use in my kitchen, one of them is San-J Tamari.
Tamari is a premium Japanese soy sauce made with all soybeans or mostly soy beans, with a richer, smoother taste and naturally brewed.
When it comes to soy sauce, you should always choose naturally brewed soy sauce instead of the cheaper and lower-grade chemically processed brands with artificial colors, preservatives or additives.
San-J Tamari is made with 100% soy, naturally brewed for up to six (6) months with no wheat.
It’s certified Gluten Free, Vegan, Kosher and non-GMO verified.
To showcase the amazing flavor and depth of San-J Tamari, I made this absolutely delicious and super easy Salmon Teriyaki Noodles, a light and healthy weeknight dinner that your entire family will thoroughly enjoy.
You could use some homemade teriyaki sauce which takes only three (3) ingredients to make: San-J Tamari, mirin and sugar. Or if you are a busy mom like me, you could also take a shortcut by using San-J Teriyaki Sauce which is made with their Tamari.
Drizzle the teriyaki sauce on any protein of your choice, for example: salmon, chicken, beef, and serve with rice, pasta, noodles, and you have an amazing, wholesome, and healthy meal for your family.
For my recipe, I chose rice noodles to make it into a Gluten Free dish. This recipe takes about 30 minutes to make but the flavors are complex and delightful, thanks to Tamari’s rich flavor.
My family, including my 5-year old picky eater, gave me 2 thumbs way up on my homemade teriyaki sauce.
The next time you are buying soy sauce, go for San-J Tamari, which comes in five different variations: Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce, Reduced Sodium Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce, Organic Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce, Organic Reduced Sodium Tamari Glute Free Soy Sauce, and Tamari Lite 50% Less Sodium Gluten Free Soy Sauce.
Trust me, San-J Tamari may just be the best tasting and most versatile sauces in your kitchen. To buy San-J products, please check out the store locator.
