Yakitori sauce.

Yakitori sauce homemade with soy sauce, mirin, chicken skin and onion by kurumicooks delicious easy to make healthy Japanese Asian and Fusion cooking for your kitchen

Here's the Yakitori sauce recipe that I used for my Yakitori recipe. It's dead easy to make (not to mention much cheaper than buying a branded sauce from the shops) and it has no additives, preservatives, stabilisers or any of the other stuff manufacturers put into their products to extend their shelf life.

This sauce contains some chicken skin to give it a little oil which combined with the sugar helps the sauce "cling" when you brush it over your yakitori. If you prefer not to use chicken skin, the sauce will be (almost) as good without it.

Keep any leftover yakitori sauce in the fridge for up to two weeks.

You can find the written recipe for my Yakitori sauce just below and for the Youtube tutorial just click Yakitori sauce or scroll to the bottom of the page.

Happy grilling! Kurumi XXXX.
