Easy Paleo Teriyaki Sauce (THM FP)
The base of this sauce is Raw Coconut Aminos. If you're unfamiliar with coconut aminos, it's simply coconut sap (which is sugar free, gluten free, low glycemic, and soy free) which is an abundant source of different amino acids. You use it just like you would soy sauce, and it has 65% less sodium than soy sauce. It's also non-GMO! If soy doesn't bother you, you can also sub Bragg Liquid Aminos, which is also gluten free, low glycemic, and non-GMO. Kikkoman Tamari is naturally gluten free, non-GMO soy based, and has a reduced sodium option as well.
Into the aminos, you grate one clove of garlic and about 1/2 an inch of fresh ginger. I always use a fine hand grater for grating things like ginger and garlic. It always cuts it small, and you can grate it straight into your bowl/pan/whathaveyou. Just makes life a touch easier.^_~ I also have a great trick for grating ginger - ginger is a root and tends to be tough to grate when it's at room temperature. So, when I bring home a root of ginger from the store, I cut it down into 1-inch pieces (no need to peel, the grater will take care of that), place it in a sandwich bag, and throw it in the freezer. Frozen ginger is MUCH easier to grate - it almost looks like snow when you grate it into your dishes. Plus, keeping it in the freezer prevents it from going bad before you have a chance to use it. Bonus!
Place the mixture into a small sauce pan, and heat on low until it's thickened. Really, it's that easy!
You can use it right away, or place it into an airtight container for later use.
