How to Make Homemade Teriyaki Sauce
Teriyaki Shrimp is only as good as the teriyaki sauce and this Homemade Teriyaki Sauce is sensational! If you have never made your own Teriyaki Sauce before, it is very simple to make with just a few pantry ingredients and I love how you can customize it to just your taste – more sweet, more savory, or more of a kick. This homemade Teriyaki Sauce version is the best yet, in my humble opinion, so please don’t be tempted to substitute traditional teriyaki sauce because it just won’t be the same!
A simple version of teriyaki sauce is equal parts soy sauce to granulated plus rice vinegar but in my version, I’ve substituted some of the sugar with Asian Sweet Chili Sauce so we not only get sweet but we get sweet heat infused with red chilies, garlic and ginger – a depth of flavor that can’t be beat. I added some cider vinegar to add back some tang and balance the sweetness along with additional garlic and ginger to create a dynamic Teriyaki Sauce that takes just minutes to whip up!
How to Defrost Frozen Shrimp
- There are two options for defrosting your shrimp. To quickly defrost, place the one pound frozen shrimp in a fine-mesh sieve or colander. Place this sieve in a large bowl of cold tap water for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, replace the water in the bowl with new cold tap water and resubmerge the shrimp. Let shrimp sit an additional 10- 20 minutes. At this point the shrimp should be completely defrosted.
- The easier way to defrost your shrimp if you remember in advance is to remove your one pound frozen shrimp to a covered bowl and let them defrost in the refrigerator overnight.
- Whatever you do, resist the urge to use warm tap water (and definitely NOT the microwave) as this will cause the shrimp to defrost and cook unevenly.
How to Make Teriyaki Shrimp with Pineapple and Snap Peas
- To make this Sheet Pan Teriyaki Shrimp, Pineapple and Snap Peas, you first whisk together your heavenly Teriyaki Sauce and set aside. Next, we add our pineapple, and splashes of brown sugar and olive oil to our pan followed by our snap peas with splashes of teriyaki sauce, olive oil, salt and pepper – can we say flavor?! We bake these for 15 minutes before adding the shrimp so everything will be perfectly cooked at the same time.
- Next, we add our shrimp and toss it with some Teriyaki sauce before roasting. Have you ever roasted shrimp? If you’ve made my aforementioned Lemon Butter Garlic Shrimp, then you know just how ridiculously easy this hands-off method is it is for perfectly cooked shrimp every time. More importantly, the teriyaki sauce has longer to permeate the shrimp so as they transform into tender, fragrant, succulent morsels, they drink up the flavor and emerge hot, juicy and exploding with Asian deliciousness.
- While your Teriyaki Shrimp is roasting, you simmer your Teriyaki sauce with just a teaspoon cornstarch to thicken into a beautiful glaze to toss your shrimp in once cooked so then, depending on if you are serving with rice, noodles, zoodles etc., or depending on how strong you like the punch of Teriyaki, drizzle your plate with as much or as little Teriyaki Sauce as your salivating palate desires.
