Okinawa Teriyaki Sauce - Shikuwasa, 8.11 oz
Born from the unique food culture of a subtropical island in Okinawa, this sweet and sour teriyaki sauce exhibits a deep umami and robust flavor with a refreshingly sour kick from shikuwasa citrus. This green, golf ball-sized, nutritious citrus is one of Okinawa’s specialty fruits, and it boasts a crisp and sour taste. Shimakara, the sauce’s producer, is an award-winning karaage fried chicken shop and they fully understand how to incorporate their southern flavors, including locally-sourced bonito, togarashi pepper, salt, and shikuwasa into this beloved teriyaki sauce. The bonito is carefully crafted—aged for an extended period and smoked twice—before being blended with premium soy sauce. Okinawa Teriyaki Sauce-Shikuwasa is such a versatile sauce that it can be used for seasoning and marinating ingredients as well as serving as a dipping sauce or even salad dressing. Its intense, refreshing, yet well-balanced, flavor complements not only Japanese but also various other cuisines.
This rich, robust and refreshing teriyaki sauce can be used for seasoning grilled-meat or seafood, barbecues, yakitori skewers, or sautéed dishes, in addition to making teriyaki. Because it has such an intense flavor, you don’t always have to marinate your ingredients but just coat them right before grilling, sautéing, or microwaving. The sauce’s sweet, savory, and citrusy flavor is particularly great with pork, lamb, vegetables, and tofu. Also, though it may be unconventional, you can add this teriyaki sauce into soups, stews, or simmered dishes as well as mixing into meals like hamburgers, nabe hot pot, or curry stew to enhance flavors. Because of the superb shikuwasa accent, you can even make a salad dressing with it. The sauce can also be used as is—served on the side of deep-fries, poke bowls, TKG (raw egg over rice), cold tofu, and sushi. It exhibits a surprisingly great flavor when mixed with wasabi, so why not try this unique taste combination with sashimi or creative sushi rolls?
